For those that were reading my Cannes Film Festival coverage Inside Job, which I tried to watch and was able to last an hour, but I could not keep my eyes open any longer and had to bail. It would seem that was a decision that will not hurt me in the end because from what I have heard Ferguson is still editing this film in an effort to make it as timely as possible once it hits theaters on October 8th. Of course, it recently secured a PG-13 rating so I will assume he’s pretty much done with it, barring some massive economic turnaround or increased downfall.
Inside Job will be showing again at the Toronto International Film Festival so I may try and catch it there or just wait until I get back depending on my schedule.
The main goal of the film is to bring to light the truth behind the 2008 economic crisis and it is filled with information and Ferguson does his absolute best to explain all of the financial terminology you’ve heard on CNN and perhaps tilted your head in bewilderment. Basically, think Michael Moore’s Capitalism, only think of this film as useful instead of slanted.
Apple has debuted the trailer and I have added it directly below, but you can head over there if you want to watch it in HD.
