Flying into damage control mode, the CEO of the company John Tuld (Irons) holds a high-level midnight meeting, attempting to address the crisis. The rest of the film deals with how the bankers go for broke, throw caution to the wind, and use every dirty trick available in the book to clear their names. The top brass even finds a fall girl to shoulder the blame of snowballing the biggest financial crisis of the millennium, with an assurance of hefty severance packages. It takes a while for viewers to get a hang of where the film is headed, but once they do, it’s a cracker-jack of a ride. Consider this your essential weekend watch.
