  • Excerpt: It’s hard to overstate just how devastating the financial crisis of 2008 was because, still today, the effects are being felt across the globe. Most financial markets have rebounded by now. Most people, however, are still finding the damage done during that major meltdown continues to affect jobs, financial security, retirement, and other facets of life. It’s one of those global crises few would like to revisit. Yet that is exactly what writer/director J.C.

  • Excerpt: The ambition of Margin Call is almost realized. Certainly in its casting and the quality of performances delivered by the likes of Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Simon Baker, Zachary Quinto, and particularly Jeremy Irons, the film soars.

Margin Call (Blu-ray Review)

  • Excerpt: While watching Margin Call, a movie that I overall enjoyed, mainly due to the ensemble cast, I felt like wishing I could appreciate it more, given the subject matter.  It is based around the events leading up to the start of the 2007-2008 financial crisis and feels like a film that could be easily watched by someone more clued into economic affairs.  Honestly, I am just not that person.

  • Summary: The support cast helps the film along, especially Paul Bettany as Will Emerson, the upcoming analyst that brings the problem to his boss and Stanley Tucci as the scapegoat for the error, both delivering excellent characters that up the suspense level.  Even though not in the film very much, Demi Moore makes an appearance as Sara Robertson, a corporate damage control specialist.  Her Robertson reminded me of the malicious personality as Merideth Wilson in Disclosure .

High-Def Digest
20 December 2011
  • Conclusion: While not worthy of any Top 10 of 2011 lists, this dialog-laden film is far more intense and entertaining than it sounds. It's not by chance that this first-time feature film writer/director locked-in this strong cast. During the short making-of special feature, cast members explain that it was the tight and intelligent script that made this passion project worth doing. The movie itself is really good, but the presentation is disappointing.

Margin Call (2011)

16 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Margin Call boasts one of the most impressive ensemble casts in recent memory, and all of the actors are at the top of their game, albeit within the buttoned down confines of the world of high finance. What the film really could have benefited from is a clear, concise explanation of exactly what is going on.

Margin Call

AV Club
20 October 2011
  • Excerpt: When Oliver Stone updated his c articles/wall-street,7489/ franchise in 2010 for the current economic crisis, he did everything he could to make the abstract concepts of credit default swaps and sub-prime mortgage bubbles seem dazzlingly cinematic. (In fact, he signifies the latter with an actual bubble floating and popping. Truly, a master of metaphor.
