The Big Short (2016)

Led by a herculean cast anchored by Bale and Carell, classically-McKay comedy pedigree, Wall Street-energy, and simplistically-told recollection of the rise and historic collapse of the housing market, T.B.S, is one of 2016’s finest films. 8/10.

Plot Synopsis: In 2008, Wall Street guru Michael Burry realizes that a number of subprime home loans are in danger of defaulting. Burry bets against the housing market by throwing more than $1 billion of his investors’ money into credit default swaps. His actions attract the attention of banker Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), hedge-fund specialist Mark Baum (Steve Carell) and other greedy opportunists. Together, these men make a fortune by taking full advantage of the impending economic collapse in America.
