Who cares about the suffering--existential, financial, or other--of those who blindly mismanaged our monies into this ever-expanding, nay, verily bottomless pit of debt? No one, but this film may help viewers understand A) the birth of current financial woes, and B) what it might have been like, in those first few hours within the confines of an early investment trading firm casualty. Fueled by a mass layoff, a thumb drive, and a rocket-scientist-cum-analyst who really understands the numbers, the last night of good times on Wall Street unfolds as rung by rung, up the executive ladder, travels news that is -- apocalyptic. For viewers who still have no idea of how 2008's meltdown happened, this film is one fiction that will make it ever so much more real

"Vier Episoden über die Conditio humana, die mit sardonischem Witz von Entfremdung, Kommunikationsunfähigkeit, Ressentiments, Krankheit, Lebenslügen, Gier und Versagensangst in den USA erzählen. Dabei ist jede Episode einer bestimmten Lebensphase zugeordnet: Kindheit, junges Erwachsensein, späte Berufstätigkeit, Rentenalter. Die mit abgründigem Humor und scheinbarer ideologischer Indifferenz inszenierten "Erzählungen" beziehen sich auf Robert Bressons Klassiker "Zum Beispiel Balthasar" (1965), überbieten aber noch dessen desillusionierten Blick auf den Menschen."
