MARGIN CALL is a methodical, coolly absorbing boardroom thriller set on the eve of the 2008 economic collapse. Chandor’s precocious writing-directing debut is fastidious, smart as it probes the human costs of unchecked greed.
MARGIN CALL, relentless in its honesty and shrewd in its insights and techniques, is unlikely to soothe the wounded pride of the actual or aspiring ruling class. It is a tale of greed, vanity, myopia and expediency that is all the more damning for its refusal to moralize.
