The Big Short (2015, It/Fr/UK/Switz, Dir: Adam McKay, 130 mins, 15)

Big Short

Stars: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt

As the millennial boom rolled on, the housing market seemed like the best one-way bet in town – anyone could own a home (or five) and the banks made vast profits packaging and selling on mortgage debt. A few small-timers, lone wolves and oddballs – Carell’s splenetic trader and Bale’s death-metal-drumming fund manager among them – realised the foundations were rotten, and set out to profit… McKay is brilliant, telling most of this potentially complex story in outrageously entertaining style, while mindful of the human cost of the crash and furious at the amoral decadence which led to it.
