a great documentary film that manages to engage audiences and explain exactly what happened in the 2008 financial crash and also show that the problem has not been resolved just brushed under the carpet waiting to happen again at the expense of the middle and working classes while wealth flows towards fewer and fewer organisations and people. Matt Damon lends his voice as commentator to a great project that focuses on the American side of the story sub prime lending and how banks, credit agencies and even government agencies where involved in trying to cover up and exploit the problem.
Using a variety of tools, interviews, explanations of how things work, historical referencing it shows how American society has been building steadily towards this problem with a dramatic finish that concludes well. A decent documentary.

An excellent in-depth documentary on the causes of the 2008 recession. It explained how some cynical companies and people, some of whom held high positions in the USA, made serious profits while millions of poor people throughout the world suffered as consequence of their actions.The saddest aspect of this is that some of these people and some of the companies got off scot-free. Well worth watching if you can cope with information that makes any reasonable person angry.

It is so easy for us all the think that the global financial crisis was an historical blip that was soon cleared up. Well this will make you think again. It was SERIOUS. This film tells the story of the greed and incompetence on a massive scale that caused the crisis. I won't say much more here as this film is a "must see".
Matt Damon's narration and some of the music really add to the film. And, what better music could it open to than "Big Time" by Peter Gabriel.....

Damn good documentary I have to say. No wonder a majority of people hate the banking industry.

'Inside Job' is full of jaw dropping facts and/or accounts that show the immense lack of accountability, and morality by the finance sector after deregulation; all of which became disturbingly apparent during the '2008 Crisis'.

I got angry watching it to be honest.

Jason Bourne takes the edge off it by Narrating. Haha.

A deeply disturbing insight into the sheer fraud, complicity and deviancy rife within the banking industry and most concerning of all...how little has been learned from the crash

If there ever was a clear statement about the extent of corruption in the American financial markets, this is it. The openness of the problem and the lack of solutions makes it clear that the next crisis is not far away.

This is a fascinating (and shocking) insight into the causes of global financial melt-down. Be aware that it is a kind of documentary with technical details discussed, albeit explained as simply as possible. You need to concentrate in order to follow some of the arguments.

Very informative but also makes you angry at how honest hard working people were manipulated into poor financial decisions. Still very little justice for those affected who lost everything for the greed of the few.

Charles Ferguson is a guy who had founded a startup called Vermeer which he then sold to Microsoft, who called the product .. FrontPage (web site edition tools).

His movie is a bit polemical, but very informative and enjoyable. This is where you see the CEO of Goldman Sachs, LLoyd Blankfein stutter vague explanations of why they sold truckloads of toxic assets to customers and then placed bets against them. Top representatives of banks, lobbies and the government get badly grilled during the interviews. Those who refused to answer questions are listed one by one in some hall of shame "Mr X or Y declined to be interviewed".
