From Academy Award (R) nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson, comes "Inside Job," the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, "Inside Job" traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You'll need a clear head to follow this impressive and angry American doc about the financial meltdown..."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"You don't have to know the difference between a credit default swap and a collateralized debt obligation to feel enraged anew by Charles Ferguson's thorough dissection of the country's economic collapse of 2008."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Ferguson is so mad he's punching at whatever's in front of him. It's understandable, but this is more polemic than documentary."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"As a documentary, this is a clear-eyed, steadily building prosecution against Wall Street. But, in the end, Ferguson's film is just a moot trial in which the defendants have already escaped scot-free."
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"This is a compelling documentary that will have you leaving the cinema absolutely seething."
‑ Simon Reynolds, Digital Spy
"This scathing expose should be enough to alarm people all over the political spectrum."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Whether it's parsing the definition of a derivative or detailing the bad faith of major financial institutions, the new documentary Inside Job approaches its deconstruction of the financial meltdown with laserlike focus."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"This eye-opening documentary is critical of both parties in its search for answers about the causes of the 2008 economic collapse."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"This is a powerful and coherent work that will explain where the money has gone. It just can't help get restitution against those who did it."
‑ Laurence Boyce, The Baltic Times
"Ultimately, Inside Job will not have much to offer those who follow financial news reports."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"Wall Street owns Washington. You might think you know this, but "Inside Job" makes you feel the enormity of it."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"[Ferguson] can get to a story later but provide so much more context that his film seems definitive."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Who whacked the economy?"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"More entertaining than Wall Street 2 while saying infinitely more about the iniquities of those that claim to work for us."
‑ Andrew Simpson, Fan The Fire
"Inside Job offers a concise history in a documentary that speaks to everyone and knows exactly who's to blame."
‑ Mike Barnard, Future Movies UK
