Inside Job

Here's another documentary on the financial crisis (see the financial crisis section of 'browse categories' for more on the crisis and other crises). The distinction of this one is that it's a film length documentary, and was originally screened at the Cannes Film Festival. The film covers the crisis in 5 parts, providing an interesting insight into the events that transpired through the first decade of the new millennium. Certainly this is one worth adding to the must see list of financial crisis documentaries.

"Part I: How We Got Here"
"Part II: The Bubble (2001-2007)"
"Part III: The Crisis"
"Part IV: Accountability"
"Part V: Where We Are Now"

Inside Job (2010) is a documentary film about the late-2000s financial crisis directed by Charles H. Ferguson. The film is described by Ferguson as being about "the systemic corruption of the United States by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption." In five parts, the film explores how changes in the policy environment and banking practices helped create the financial crisis. Inside Job was well received by film critics who praised its pacing, research, and exposition of complex material.
