Too Big To Fail


Block 90 minutes of your weekend, now. HBO, known for their award-winning documentaries, have turned the eruption of the 2008 financial crisis into the obvious: a thriller – or, as you might want to call it, a thrillumentary. Based on the book by New York Times writer Andrew Sorkin, “Too Big To Fail”, they recap the dramatic events before and right after the collapse of investment bank Lehman Brothers. A captivating story of big money, bigger egos and looming disaster. The film is not officially available yet – so I’m pointing you to the extended 18-minute trailer – but I’m sure you can think of ways to watch the entire film.
