Inside Job

The critical consensus

This superior documentary is packed to the gills with enraging, depressing answers as to what ignited the 2008 recession.

****(*)Jonathan Crocker, Total Film, 05/02/2011

On the plus side, inventive graphics help to delineate complex issues and the film is pleasingly devoid of political leanings. On the minus, certain issues which may also have been root causes are glossed over.

****(*)Matthew Arnoldi, The Skinny, 11/02/2011

A sharp study of corporate greed for those who felt Michael Moore pulled too many punches.

****(*)Damon Wise, Empire Online, 14/02/2011

Yes, this doesn't change anything, and yes they are being reduced to de facto Aunt Sallys here, but it's rather satisfying all the same.

****(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 15/02/2011

Sober, thoughtful and outraged, and gives an illuminating, if infuriating, insight into the unethical practices of our financial rulers.

****(*)Rob Carnevale, The Herald, 17/02/2011

The shocking truth about the economic crisis

*****Chris Tookey, Daily Mail, 18/02/2011

Essential viewing.

****(*)Daily Record, 18/02/2011

Next to the scare-bomb tactics of a Michael Moore, Ferguson’s cogency and patience feel like adult tools for an adult task.

****(*)Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 17/02/2011

Ferguson argues that what happened was criminal fraud on a catastrophic scale and asks why there have been no prosecutions of those responsible.

****(*)Tom Dawson, The List, 17/02/2011

Inside Job adds up to cinema's most remarkable indictment of financial chicanery since Enron: the Smartest Guys in the Room in 2005.

****(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 18/02/2011

This film is as gripping as any thriller.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 17/02/2011

There's a restless anger here.

****(*)Antonia Quirke, Financial Times, 16/02/2011

Banker bashing is transformed into very focused rage in this clear-headed, intelligently argued documentary about the cause, effect and legacy of the 2008 financial meltdown.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 19/02/2011

Almost two hours sitting in front of a bunch of economists talking about credit derivatives doesn't sound like a great night out, but, somehow, Charles Ferguson's documentary indictment of the financial-economic-political complex manages to carry you though it.

Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 20/02/2011

Inside Job is no Michael Moore-style, left-wing polemic, but a lucid, coolly-explained exposé that blames left and right equally for the crisis.

Henry Fitzherbert, Daily Express, 20/02/2011

...this intelligent, riveting and informative film, which I cannot commend too highly.

Philip French, The Observer, 20/02/2011

This is compelling storytelling which, unlike Wall Street, doesn’t have a happy ending.

Demetrios Matheou, The Herald, 20/02/2011
