Spring 2012 February 27
USA 2010, 108 min, documentary. Director: Charles Ferguson
Inside Job is considered the most comprehensive, objective, and damning investigative documentary to tackle the 2008 global financial meltdown.
Producer/director Ferguson, who holds a PhD in political science and is a former business consultant, conducts on-camera interviews with principal players. Calm and unfailingly polite, although often incredulous at what he is hearing, Ferguson skewers lobbyists, government apologists, and academic “hired guns” in his search for what actually lay behind the financial catastrophe.
Narrated by Academy Award winner Matt Damon, Inside Job was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.
