Inside Job is a 2010 American documentary film, directed by Charles Ferguson, about the late 2000s financial crisis.
The global financial meltdown that took place in Fall of 2008 caused millions of job and home losses and plunged the United States into a deep economic recession.
This documentary provides a detailed examination of the elements that led to the collapse and identifies key financial and political players.
Director Charles Ferguson conducts a wide range of interviews and traces the story from the United States to China to Iceland to several other global financial hot spots.
Ferguson, who began researching in 2008, says the film is about “the systemic corruption of the United States by the financial services industry and the consequences of that systemic corruption”. In five parts, the film explores how changes in the policy, environment and banking practices helped create the financial crisis.
