A few days ago, I watched The Big Short, a comedy-drama based on a true story depicting the global financial crisis of 2008.
You must be asking: Huh? Comedy drama? Financial crisis? Boring?
I must admit that I had mixed feelings when reading the film’s introduction. I see-sawed between comedy (hate) and finance (love). What a wonderful surprise to find the film absolutely entertaining and memorable! Somehow, the light-hearted aspects of the film had contributed much in making this otherwise very technical and tedious topic… understandable, interesting and human?
The Big Short is fantastic and will definitely be on top of my movie list for a while.
