Storyline

The heads of Wall Street's biggest investment banks were summoned to an evening meeting by the US Treasury Secretary, Hank Paulson, to discuss the plight of another - Lehman Brothers. After six months' turmoil in the world's financial markets, Lehman Brothers was on life support and the government was about to pull the plug. Lehman CEO, Dick Fuld, recently sidelined in a boardroom coup, spends the weekend desperately trying to resuscitate his beloved company through a merger with Bank of America or UK-based Barclays. But without the financial support of Paulson and Lehman's fiercest competitors, Fuld's empire - and with it, the stability of the world economy - teeters on the verge of extinction.

Quotes

Henry 'Hank' Paulson: The west is fucked. We fucked it up. Oh, not just you and me. All of us. The west, it's done. It's over. You want to call it a game? This is the game. You want your great-grandchildren speaking Chinese? The dollar is going to go. We had Rome, then Europe then this. Us. This thing with cars and stereos and hula-hoops. And we screwed it all up. We ran through it all. This stuff. And we've come out on the other side where it's... I dunno. Where is this place? Oh yeah. We have this one weekend ...

good if you know the story behind it
2 May 2012 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

This documentary movie short enough to watch without learning too much what was going behind the scenes.

A narrative guy who is ID and responsibility in the company is unknown is talking randomly and not giving much insight.

We see a meeting room full of people but we don't know who they are. So if you are not familiar with the full story, I suppose you would struggle to follow.

Also terms are used is fine for a person with finance background but wouldn't mean much to others.

Overall a nice attempt but not to the point - leaves blanks to fill and the effect of the collapse has gone untouched.
