    A Modern-Day Horror Story From The Street

    In light of what has happened in the last three years, it seemed inevitable that Hollywood would eventually get around to making at least one movie dealing with the financial scandals of 2008 that almost pushed the worldwide economy into the abyss. "Margin Call" is the first fictional film to deal with that topic and it's a dramatic whopper. Featuring an all-star cast, "Margin Call" is also the directorial debut of J. C. Chandor and the movie freely borrows from several scandals during that time, most of which were covered brilliantly in the Oscar-winning documentary, "Inside Job". The movie takes place in a fictionalized New York investment bank. When an employee is fired, he hands over his UBS port to a young, up-and-coming Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto), who is told to "be careful". When Sullivan looks at this computer file, he discovers a horrible secret that unfolds into a potential scandal which could erupt in 36 hours. Soon, everyone is brought to the table to discuss what may happen, including John Fuld (Jeremy Irons), the CEO, who tells his employees to sell off their worthless assets before anyone finds out they are worthless. To tell you more, of course, would be telling. However, it should be mentioned that this drama doesn't play any favorites and its less-than-tidy climax leaves the viewer angry and bewildered. Chandor did a fantastic job with this story and the cast is superb. Especially Zachary Quinto, who sees the immorality in what his firm has done but seems as helpless as anyone to stop it. There are some familiar faces here, too, such as Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore and Stanley Tucci, who is excellent as the fired employee. However, the best performance is by Jeremy Irons, as the chilly, ruthless CEO who tells his employees there are three ways to get ahead: be first, be smart or cheat. Irons' performance here makes you realize that he is the living embodiment of the great London stage actors, particuarly Lawrence Olivier, whom he is a strong reminder of. This is clearly a modern-day horror story but in this case, the monsters are bankers and stockbrokers and their victims are the unaware and unsuspecting public who will pay for their misdeeds. Seems that any resemblance to any slimy financial traders is purely intentional. Whether you agree with the Occupy Wall Streeters or not, this is a must-see film whose message of unbridled, reckless greed speakers louder with the passing of time.
