The Big Short
This is about the housing crash in the USA in 2008 which brought whole countries to their knees. It was hard to believe this was a true story really, the characters were quite over-the-top, especially Christian Bale’s glass eye acting.
Good stuff, and very easy to follow, the filmmakers use real people (Selena Gomez is one), to explain certain complex things about sub-primes etc. A couple of the actors break the forth wall to explain things too.
Bizarrely directed by the guy who makes those dumb comedies with Will Ferrell!
