“Men who destroyed their own companies and plunged the world into financial crisis walked away from the wreckage with their fortunes intact.” – Inside Job
The Academy Award-winning documentary Inside Job, directed by Charles Ferguson, is now out on DVD. The film, narrated by Matt Damon, documents the origins of the financial meltdown that defined the end of George W. Bush’s second term, and the fallout that is defining Barack Obama’s presidency.
Inside Job is well-crafted, pulls no punches, and is a must-rent DVD for anyone who wants to understand in layman’s terms who and what caused the financial “Armageddon” that continues to plague global and domestic markets. Most importantly, Inside Job showcases how nothing has changed – and it’s about to happen all over again if we don’t wise up.

You might not think that director Charles Ferguson’s Inside Job, the newly (and deservedly) Oscar-nominated documentary about 2008’s global economic meltdown, would offer much in the way of participatory, audience-goosing entertainment. After all, this isn’t exactly a Michael Moore doc we’re dealing with here. Employing dozens of lucid, well-reasoned interviews with financial experts and reams of statistics and graphs, Ferguson’s strong, angry, yet level-headed explanation of our current financial crisis is the polar opposite, in temperament and tone, of a Fahrenheit 9/11 or Capitalism: A Love Story. But while the experience of the impeccably photographed, sharply edited Inside Job is a mostly dead-serious one, damn but my audience appeared to have a good time at it – or, perhaps it’s more appropriate to say, a cathartic time.
