Get the Inside Scoop With Inside Job

New DVD release

by

Perhaps the most interesting moment of the 2011 Oscars came from Charles Ferguson, director of Inside Job, which won the award for Best Documentary Feature.

When accepting his award, he angrily said, "Forgive me, I must start by pointing out that three years after our horrific financial crisis caused by financial fraud, not a single financial executive has gone to jail and that's wrong."

As his speech suggests, the documentary focuses on the financial crisis of 2008 and how it was avoidable. It will leave you, according to one reviewer, "smart angry." A film that promises to leave viewers both educated and motivated? Yes, please.
