Nuts to you, this looks like a GREAT movie to prompt political battles.

This looks great. I've been looking for a solid documentary and this looks interesting. =)

Looks like this movie has potential. I will definitely see this. If you want some more interesting listening material about the economic collapse, I recommend the following podcasts:

Blaming wall street is like blaming kids at a party who got drunk because their punch was spiked by their parents. Wall street excess was a symptom, not a cause. The cause was the Federal Reserve and it's cartel of mega banks. They flooded the world with trillions of dollars since their inception in 1913. They caused the great depression, the housing bubble, the dot com bubble, and all the other bubbles and recessions and depressions that followed. If this documentary tries to tell you it was all wall streets fault, and gives only a small bit of blame to the Fed to make it look good, then its lying and its was most likely funded by the Fed itself.

Shipley, Everyone is at fault for this mess. You can't say that the Fed was the cause b/c they have flooded the market with money. They were the cause b/c interest rates were kept low and the market looked for other ways to invest and get a better return. The Fed nor Fannie & Freddie did not create CDS's or Sub-prime mortgages: Wall Street and the free market did. Blame the Fed as much as you like, but the Fed has done a lot of good in controlling inflation. Before the Fed, inflation was volatile and there were very frequent market bubbles. Some of the founding fathers died broke because of these bubbles. The Fed has helped stabilize our economy which has allowed it to become on the world's strongest. The last thing I want to see happen is Ron Paul's plan to end the Fed. I like some of RP's idea, but this one is not smart. It would return control of the US currency to Congress as described in the Constitution, which is the last place in the world you would want our currency to be managed.

While the film looks very interesting, I despised the aspect ratio changes that occurred throughout this trailer. Black bars on either side of the screen are unprofessional and distracting.

shadow, are you the full can of tuna ?

Still waiting for Ferguson's sequel to 'No End in Sight' called 'Troops Coming Home, Fragile Democracy in Place.'

Looks really intereseting but it seems like they just want to find out who is responsible and to show everything that is wrong with them. Now that makes it a fun movie to watch but I would like to see more a psychological analysis of the behavior that finnally provoked the crisis. Still... looks like a lot of fun 😉

Dreckent on Aug 24, 2010


@7 Save that gripe for a big Hollywood movie (say like the aspect ratio shifts in Dark Knight). This is a documentary, compiling footage from lots of sources, technology and times, nothing is uniform. Distracting for you, but definitely not "unprofessional." I'm sure your li'l nit-picky brain will still be able to follow the point and have the same impact even if it were all the same the same aspect ratio.

Voice of Reason on Aug 24, 2010


Narrated by Matt Damon? Now I know for sure it's a biased piece of libtard nonsense.

Looks like a must see. Geoff can have his bs Faux News.

Hey, @11, do the rest of Human race a favor and jump off a cliff.

*...the Human race...* LOL

Fuck Eliot Spitzer. Eliot is a hypocritical piece of shit. Hindsight's 20/15 bitches. This movie's all woulda, coulda, shoulda. @blester1 - Being a fiat currency, the US dollar's ripe for inflation anytime. 1$ in 1913 is equivalent to 22$ in 2009. The Fed has actively inflated the dollar which hurts savers. If Moody's downgrades the US' credit, a US treasury bubble will be next. And then a movie "I told the government, and they didn't listen."

Blester01. You're right: Everyone is at fault. Sad thing is, I don't believe there's anything that will truly change the financial mess this country is in. At least, not to the extent the American people want. As long as the top 2% of the country make the decisions for the bottom 98% we will continue to see financial crisis after financial crisis. Personally. I'm starting to not give a shit any more. We've been so desensitized to who is at fault, who's to blame, and how the process of accountability would be exhausting. Watching a film like this will only frustrate me more. I'm sure it'll be good, but what good will really come of it. Hell, you fart now-a-days and someone's making a documentary about the financial crisis and who's fault it is. Yawn.

Oh boy if these things were dug out what we'd find is a lot of "Powerful" people going to prison. From the top, presidents, to the bottom, whatever that is.

Ugghh... there are stupid people f*cking everywhere, including in these comments. Every piece of information is important. A doc can motivate you to do some actual research or just inform you of general trends. Never dump on knowledge! Posters #5, 7, 9, 11 and 15 should be shot in the face with a very large gun!
