The Big Short Movie Review

By Tammy Laval

The movie ‘The Big Short’ tackles the 2007 US housing market crash, through the eyes and words of the storyline characters who set-out to profit from it….Doesn’t sound like a great pitch to a movie, however, knowing how the book became a movie does add to the storyline.
Who would be interested in making a movie about credit-default swaps, right? Well it appears comedy can sell most things, enter the plot line on how to understand credit-default swaps … the rest they say is history.

If you haven’t seen Moneyball, staring Brad Pitt, use it as a lead-up to this one.

Also take a quick read of the Vanity Fair write-up from the Author himself, and you like me may be interested in making this the next movie on your ‘Movie hit list’.
