This is one of the best films I\'ve ever seen. I keep watching it over and over. The acting is superb, and the pacing is excellent. It gives me the chills every time I watch it, because I know this is approximately what happened in 2008 and it was what started the horrible downward trends, the bailouts, the bankruptcies, the devastation -- all started with one firm like this one. It\'s unfortunate that the author of the script felt an absolute obssession with the \"F\" word, as it is heard about a zillion times throughout the film, and I thought, fairly distracting. A few \"F\" words sprinkled here and there for emphasis would have done it for me. This may be why the film hasn\'t reached the popularity it might have reached, because it is a brilliant film.
