Margin Call

Rated R 109 minutes 2011

Not the first 2008 Economic Meltdown drama and probably far from the last, writer-director J.C. Chandor’s debut feature benefits hugely from his sophisticated plotting and dialogue, as a fictitious, risk-bloated Wall Street investment firm is the first to go down in flames. Basically, they fired the guy who knew everything (Stanley Tucci) and now they’re blaming each other. And no one except the $250K/year junior-exec grunts really understands the business. The cast adds to the nasty frisson: Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Paul Bettany, Simon Baker, Demi Moore, and Zachary Quinto as Peter Sullivan, the “rocket scientist” who may be the only moral individual in the room. Quite an actor’s derby. (105 min.)
