An insight into the human elements of a financial crisis,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Margin Call [DVD] (DVD)
This film does not attempt to explain how the global financial crisis had occurred. So if you are looking to learn about the specific causes of the 2008 crisis should look elsewhere.
However, this film does a very good job of capturing the sort of personalities you may encounter in an investment banking environment, and the way these people think and act. The dynamics between different personalities, many of whom can be labelled as dysfunctional, as depicted in the film are entirely credible. It provides an insight for those outside the industry as to how a financial crisis can occur, based on the types of people that thrive in that environment.
