anyone seen this? thoughts?
>He actually said that. He actually got up, took that call, and now you see what I had to deal with.
Hyperkek at that line. Also where the chink is explaining how the CDOs were actually getting shittier, that was fantastic.
It was like a less entertaining wolf of wall street
I appreciate the choice to include all of the incomprehensible wall street jargon but then there was the trite 3 minute celebrity cameos that tried and failed to explain it
A bit preachy (that line of dialog when they enter the empty bank offices at the end) but endearing characters and pleasing to watch with some fun moments.
I bet tv hates it because it's normie meme flick somehow.
pree good except the big name actors, more specifically gosling, didn't really feel authentic for their roles
Am I the only one that feel like they try to talk down to the audience the entire time?
I mean, the concepts they explain aren't very difficult, but the movie spends a great deal of effort patting itself on the back for how "clever" their SMASH/CUT "here's a naked chick in a tub to explain to you cause you're not smart enough to get it"
WTF? Get over yourself.
that was one of my favorite scenes and I also loved the one where Carrell goes to his boss' office and everyone on the floor is crying silently.
Shit I wish I could have been there to watch it all go down. Must have been awe-inducing. Are there any articles or documentaries that vivldy go into the last days at the Lehman Brothers offices, Worldcom, etc?
That's me. You might be wondering how I got here. We'll get back to that. But first here's Margot Robbie in a bubble bath explaining how the stock market works...

Goose was patronizing them, kind of his character, kind of the point of the whole film.
Jesus christ. Some fedoras getting rattled because a film questioned their intelligence.
>Put The Driver, Bat(e)man, and Tyler Durden in the same movie
>Nobody kicks ass
>Am I the only one that feel like they try to talk down to the audience the entire time?
Very distracting from the movie.
Several other documentaries does this much better without devolving into cartoonish caricatures.
One of the better movies I saw this year. Thought the editing and direction were very creative. Bale and Carell were great. Dialogue was entertaining and funny. Gosling was miscast, though.
The editing was actually terrible particularly the sound mixing. The 3rd party music overpowered the narration in many scenes and it became very hard to hear crucial bits of dialogue. Whoever did the sound for the movie is an idiot.
surprised this board isn't more hostile towards it desu
>the trite 3 minute celebrity cameos that tried and failed to explain it
>the movie literally included scenes where they dumbed down the concepts as much as possible and you STILL couldn't grasp them
it's very good.
i don't know what to think about those 4th wall breaks. i know it is heavily inspired by the Wolf of Wall Street... Those things are definitely entertaining as fuck, but wasn't it a bit too out of place?
nevertheless best movie 2015 (finally something that isn't nerd-core)
Great movie let down by the patronising 3 minute cameos to explain concepts that had literally just been explained.
Tells an alright story, but you can't help feel that this was made purely to be sold to universities to show in their economics 101 lectures and serve as the gold standard of the financial crises explanations
I also preferred south park's explanation
Margin call meets Wolf of Wall Street.
Pretty derivative and unimaginative, but entertaining nonetheless.
A good companion piece to the movie is 99 homes, which I do recommend.
Average audience needs economic concepts told to them in a very easy way otherwise they will miss the entire point of the movie.
YES IT WAS REALLY NECESSARY you have no idea how dumb the average person is...
