Movie Reviews

  • though this could be the official film of the Occupy Wall Street movement, you don't need a political agenda to fear the enormity of power held by these select few. In fact, it's the sort of realistic horror that could unsettle an entire audience
    4 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News ]
  • nevertheless holds its own among them, slicing perhaps a little too close to marrow
    3.5 of 4 by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post ]
  • Margin Call may not be telling things exactly as they were, but it's close enough to provide an uncomfortable glimpse behind the curtain. And it's an engrossing "thinking" thriller as well. It's amazing that so much tension can be generated
    3.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • it captures how our financial institutions became secret havens to a selfishness so undiluted it was sociopathic. You watch this drama of big money with a tingle of toxic fascination
    Review rate : A- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • if you enjoy good acting, and quiet direction - and are willing to accept that even the worst villain never sees himself as a villain - "Margin Call" is a pretty safe bet

    3 of 4 by Lou Lumenick [New York Post ]
  • an explosive drama that speaks lucidly and scarily to the times we live in
    3 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • a smart, harrowing and mordant drama set inside a fictional Wall Street firm at the trip-wire moment just before the 2008 financial collapse
    3.5 of 4 by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post ]
  • a brainy, dialogue-driven business drama that feels as vital as an adrenaline-driven Hollywood thriller
    3 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
