Quick Verdict: Entertained And Confused
A rather enjoyable look at the depressing truth of the financial crisis of this century. This is a well threaded film with a horrible truth, a lot of people are greedy and don’t care about the consequences of there actions.
Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carroll give great performances, and Christian Bale was nominated several times for supporting actor. But the real talent lies in the adapted screenplay. Nominated several times and winner at the BAFTA’s and Oscars. It’s not surprising either. I’ll admit, I still don’t understand a lot of what they were going on about, but thanks to the screenplay, I have a vague knowledge and can compare it to Fish Stew, a game of Blackjack and a bubble bath with Margot Robbie.
