8th April 2018: The Big Short (2015)
A Hollywood reenactment of the 2010 documentary Inside Job. Through ironies and humour and pop culture references and cameo appearances and occasional breaking of the fourth wall, The Big Short (directed and co-written by Adam Mckay) tells the ugliest story of our times from the angles of a few elites who had foreseen the storm and took action by shorting the market.
The scene transitions, the right moments when the music kicks in, the masterful portrayals of four different personalities, the cinéma vérité, the jokes, and the occasional realisations of the seriousness in it make it all a tremendously enjoyable piece. An experience unlike any other films’.
