Margin call is a pretty cool movie


I’m really loving Margin Call on a rewatch. It’s just such a perfect mix of tensity and intrigue. I don’t know if its the acting/setting/content but I my attention is fully engaged at each moment of the story. Part of the tonality is nice in that it doesn’t portray every banker as a ruthless sociopath. There’s certainly some dissonance with non-uber-wealthy people, but the ruthlessness is a business kind, not the newer classwar ruthlessness of Succession or the unhinged apathy of Industry.
