A gripping eight-part documentary series follows Academy Award nominated filmmaker, Joe Berlinger, as he investigates a series of mysterious deaths and disappearances in the small rust-belt town of Chillicothe, Ohio.
For three weeks in September 2008, one person was charged with preventing the collapse of the global economy. No one understood the financial markets better than Hank Paulson, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs. In Hank: Five Years from the Brink, Paulson tells the complete story of how he persuaded banks, Congress and presidential candidates to sign off on nearly $1 trillion in bailouts - even as he found the behavior that led to the crisis, and the bailouts themselves, morally reprehensible. Directed by Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost Trilogy, Some Kind of Monster), the film features Paulson, and his wife of 40 years, Wendy. it's a riveting portrait of leadership under unimaginable pressure - and a marriage under unfathomable circumstances.Written by
Even as we are slowly creeping out of the great recession, close to a depression I don't really understand the dynamics of what happen. I also wonder why no one ever took the blame or went to jail. The big guys got bailed out and the little guy got holding the back. In this fascinating documentary, Hank, Five Years From the Brink, former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson under the Bush administration takes you an insider's account of what actually happen. It follows pretty much the way his own memoir reads. This movie also points to the way that our leaders pretty much muddle through our problems. This market was falling, the economy was in the tank, and the government just pumped money in to hold up the failing institutions. You don't need a degree in political science to follow the story, just sit back and listen to this man who was there. I saw this film as part of the 2014 Atlanta Film Festival.
