The Big Short

Recently, I watched the movie The Big Short, which definitely merits a recommendation. The film does a great job of explaining some of the causes of the 2007-2008 financial crisis, and somehow it manages to be really fun to watch despite the horrifying reality of the corruption depicted in the film.

There is lots to talk about regarding both the artistic choices of the filmmakers and also the subject of the film, so I encourage you to go see it with your friends (and make sure to leave time for discussion afterward). I can’t help but think, as a friend of mine suggested, that hosting viewing parties of this film would be a great way to mobilize people in support of relevant legal reforms, which are sorely needed.
