||Synopsis: A close look behind the scenes, between late March and mid-October, 2008: we follow Richard Fuld's benighted attempt to save Lehman Brothers; conversations among Hank Paulson (the Secretary of the Treasury), Ben Bernanke (chair of the Federal Reserve), and Tim Geithner (president of the New York Fed) as they seek a private solution for Lehman's; and, back-channel negotiations among Paulson, Warren Buffet, investment bankers, a British regulator, and members of Congress as almost all work to save the U.S. economy. By the end, with the no-strings bailout arranged, modest confidence restored on Wall Street, and a meltdown averted, Paulson wonders if banks will lend. Written by email@example.com

Unfortunately the filmmakers felt the need to create a "hero" of the
piece -- unlike the source book, which simply tells what happened. They
chose Henry Paulson (William Hurt), ex-Goldman Sachs CEO turned
Treasury Secretary. But the real-life Paulson is no hero.
The film makes a point that Paulson sold all his Goldman stock before
becoming Treasury Sec, but fails to point out that he was excused from
all taxes on the sale, which saved him upwards of $50 million.
The film also whitewashes Paulson's $150 billion AIG bailout, claiming
that AIG owed money to almost everybody in the world. In fact, AIG's
largest creditor was, that's right, Goldman Sachs. Paulson failed to
negotiate a hard-nosed payout of AIG's obligations, such as offering
creditors 50c on the dollar, which the creditors would have had no
choice but to accept. This would have saved US taxpayers a cool $75
billion. But it would have hurt Paulson's pals at Goldman.
My point being, Paulson was thoroughly compromised, and managed to
feather his own nest and that of his old pals. What next? A stirring
depiction of Dick Cheney's altruistic hiring of Halliburton in Iraq?
This shortcoming aside, the film clips along nicely, and it's fun to
see so many name actors portraying the Wall Street titans. James Woods
is a perfect Dick Fuld.
