MARGIN CALL (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Margin Call—
master of its class—performs as a Bravo! WOW! entertainment piece. Intense film that will be maximally appreciated if one reads the plotline before viewing features Zackary Quinto, Stanley Tucci, Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Paul Bettany, Penn Badgley, and Demi Moore. It sets the pace for its portrayal of 24-hours behind the scenes of a financial collapse and sets the stage for Director J.C. Chandor to do nearly anything he wants to do in film direction.
