Margin Call (2011) – J.C. Chandor

Corporate drama about a company on the edge of ruin and its take-no-prisoners reaction to survive. It takes an MBA to truly know what’s going on but that’s of little matter, the performances are sound, by Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Zachary Quinto, Stanley Tucci and Jeremy Irons in particular and it’s clear enough where everyone stands. The tale isn’t told with much flair by director J.C. Chandor but it zips by and lingers long enough to introduce some complex themes.
