Yeah I've seen it.

You'll forget about it in T-minus when you fall asleep.

I know it's not 100% accurate, and lacks any explosions, 3D, or boobies, but fall asleep?

Wow, RottenTomatoes gave it a 98?
89% of the audience liked it?

Didn't hear about it till a friend of mine mentioned it last week.

It DOES start slow, but it explains things pretty well, I think. I knew SOME of the basics, but not all the major players involved...

I meant--You will like it the night you watch it, and maybe even tell some friends you had a pleasant experience, but when you wake up the next morning you probably won't remember the movie very well.

I dunno - I don't exactly "like" it - only have been able to watch parts of it during my commute - but it is ANYTHING but pleasant...
It's well done, but just wonder how accurate it is. Doesn't seem to sensationalize it too much, but they do pick some 'guilty-looking' video clips of these guys...then PAUSE! for dramtic effect... then guy looking to the side..then PAUSE!

Yeah, generally it's not all that useful to show bad people in a good light because it would come across as a dissonance. Imagine portraying, for instance, the evil (insert dictator/despot/tyrant) playing with their kids on a sunny spring picnic while the narrator discusses the various evil deeds they're responsible for. Messes up the whole tone of the piece.

In other news, here's a pretty dense infodump on the subject if you want to cram your head with a multiyear event crammed into a few hours: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/meltdown/

HAHAHAHAHHAHAAA That's awesome!!!

Makes sure you read that twice - YOU'RE AWESOME for misreading the title of the movie, and making me wonder why you'd find the housing crisis enjoyable...

That other movie's the one w/ the minis, right? New saw it...

HAHAHAHHAHAH THAT's AWESOME

It's like the movie equivalent of pearl jam - many like it, but 24 hours later you've totally forgotten about them.
