A must see by every American to understand that our elected leaders and the “financial guru’s” have no accountability as to what they are doing while turning a blind eye to ones that warn against impending disasters. It is a corrupted system and continues to remain the same.

Inside Job is a 2010 documentary film about the late-2000s financial crisis directed by Charles H. Ferguson. The film is described by Ferguson as being about “the systemic corruption of the United States by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption.”[3] In five parts, the film explores how changes in the policy environment and banking practices helped create the financial crisis.

Inside Job was well received by film critics who praised its pacing, research, and exposition of complex material. The film was screened at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival in May and won the 2010 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

I read the book a long time ago while taking an interdisciplinary studies course in college. Came across the movie on youtube and couldn’t help watching it.

Lasting nearly 3 hours, this movie is a small screen adaptation released in 1997.

Students of the Odyssey may recognize that Homer’s version is out of order by design, whereas this movie follows events in a chronological order. Overall it is a good mythological movie, particularly enjoyed the exotic Maltese and Turkish locations; extravagant costumes; and the drama. Definitely worth watching.
