Margin Call - The movie

Be First
Be Smarter
Or Cheat

This is the message of the CEO of the Investment Banking
Company portrayed in the movie Margin Call.

Billed as a financial Thriller it tells the story of a company who realized
their assets were less that the sales. Faced with this information from
an underling in the company they work all night to decide what to do
about it. It won't be a spoiler to say that they decide to sell the bogus

An interesting film about what we all expect can go on on Wall Street.
Interesting but in spite of a sterling cast, as a movie it didn't work for me.

They look at money as numbers on a computer screen that can be manipulated.
They have no concept of what it is to take a $5.00 bill to the grocery store
to buy milk and bread.

Stars Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Stanley Tucci, Jeremy Irons and Demi Moore.

2** Just OK
