Margin Call

This is a vaguely interesting non-documentary about the financial collapse of 2008.  In fact, it is not nearly as interesting as “Inside Job,” the documentary I’ve seen on the subject.  The film  takes you behind the scenes of a fictional company on the night before the collapse starts.  You see the machinations behind decisions to cut losses despite the effect on other companies and you come to appreciate the men and women involved as real people stuck in a difficult situation.  In theory.  Had it not been for the distance kept between us and the characters at all times, I might have felt something for somebody.  As it was, I felt nothing but a mild curiosity.
