An interesting mix of opinions on the cause and effect of the financial crash

The Flaw review

“We just want one thing From Wall Street – we would like them to be able to do the math.” So snaps one incredulous corporate watchdog in Sundance darling David Sington’s damning doc on the financial crash.

Sington tackles the unenviable task of making economic theory digestible to Joe public by interspersing talking heads with punchy animations that illustrate without patronising, though the jargon quotient remains high.

Boffins and Wall Street-ers offer up a range of opinion, while three civilians paying the price inject a restrained dose of moral anger.
