Too Big To Fail

Too Big To Fail, The first word you have on our website that the film magnificently taut and lucid Curtis Hanson on the 2008 financial crisis, “too big to fail”, was making his debut last night was a compliment, with the weak-conviction review taken from The Los Angeles Times. The writer sometimes thought it was funny to admit, “Fannie Mae will always be the title of the Buster Brown song for me, and much of the first of the issue here and many of the characters that passed in a blur of blue suits gibberish – very similar to my experience of the crisis itself, for that matter. ”
So I want to make perfectly clear: “too big to fail”, as Andrew Ross Sorkin bestseller, succeeds in transforming attempts back in the room to cool down the crisis into a tragicomic fable of our time. Several episodes of the mobile phone tag with the utmost urgency compelling as “Social Network” mourned keyboards.
In intelligent Ken Tucker, anthem breeze show Entertainment Weekly magazine, acknowledged that Hanson and screenwriter Peter Gould create something “extravagant entertainment” out of “a huge cast in business suits talking about the screwed-up system that enabled million hard-working Americans to lose their home. “He noted that the filmmakers do Sorkin unbleached group portrait” powerful-especially men who are anxious, above all, to maintain their profit margins and personal wealth, and secondly, to prevent the U.S. economy collapses. ”
The stand-outs on the black list includes James Woods, who impregnates Lehman Brothers CEO Dick Fuld with the arrogance of Shakespeare, and Tony Shalhoub, who is stripped of any hint of “Monk” to convey the brutal effectiveness of Morgan Stanley John Mack, CEO.
But what makes the film click is the way Hanson receives each performer to express the mixture of calculation and virtuoso of the survival instinct that once made their real-life characters of Tom Wolfe not only masters of the universe, but the master of masters of the universe.
Against them, Gould Hanson and position of two wise men. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson William Hurt, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, strives to maintain a financial system ill fatally near life support while improvising a potential cure. Ben Bernanke, Paul Giamatti, President of the Federal Reserve, becomes crucial whip does ridiculously selfish fat cats on Wall Street and congressional leaders understandably skeptical to accept Paulson’s emergency plans.
In the most striking characterization of Howard’s career, which makes the combination of Paulson’s pragmatism and quietly heroic righteousness. In a remarkable piece of directing, camera and performance, which falls at a meeting of Democrats, and falls to his knees in front of Nancy Pelosi – and feel all the anguish, despair, humor, and yes, the gallantry of the moment.
Bernanke gives a distinctive Giamatti, saturnine self-awareness that makes this intellectual character, both surprising and moving. When it spits out the truth about an impending Great Depression, who knows he is showing to the last drop of their anxiety and fear.
Hanson “Too Bad to fail” may be the closest Americans have come echoing the classic political thriller films of the great Italian Francesco Rosi, who made the art of journalism by wringing every nuance from the historical record.
But it has the moral framework of a modern Western, with Paulson and Bernanke Hurt Giamatti is trying to impose good behavior as best they can in the financial boundaries that have no rule. Do not get to walk victorious in a picturesque sunset. They are wondering if you save the bankers ever going to do the right thing.
