“A funny, energetic and self-aware film that manages to entertain without diluting the complications - or the gravity - of its subject matter.”~Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Aroview: A nimble and pointed comedy with a serious agenda about four denizens in the world of high-finance who predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s, and decide to profit from that knowledge.

3 stars (Good Enough) Based on, and maintains the irreverent tone of, the Micheal Lewis book. Unwraps the complexity of the various financial derivatives trading frauds without losing its sense of humour. Loosely based on actual events.Worth a look~TE901
2 stars (Good Try) Trying way too hard to be clever, while patronising its audience. Privileged white guys make money off the fraudulent banking system while the clueless public lose everything. But they feel bad about it, and the banks are worse, so they're heroes really~Emily
