Confidence Game (2011)
- Documentary | Crime
CONFIDENCE GAME examines the demise of the investment bank known as Bear Stearns; the first Wall Street domino to fall in America's, and the world's most dire economic crisis since the Great Depression. Though the firm collapsed in the space of five short days, CONFIDENCE GAME reveals that the bank's downfall was many years in the making due to a confluence of fraud, Washington's political ambitions, lax federal oversight, media manipulation and out and out greed. The film features interviews with investigative reporters like Bryan Burrough from Vanity Fair, William D. Cohan of FORTUNE and Andrew Sorkin of the New York Times who give a blow by blow account of the firm's collapse.
