Just noticed it's coming on soon.

Sorkin's book "Break the Glass" was just great.

Bill Hurt came to my house for church related events when I was growing up - he certanly is an intence guy.

Just finished watching Too Big To Fail.

Absolutely stellar movie. Great cast. I will be recommending to all my friends and family that they watch this immediately so they can better understand what happened.

I was reliving a lot of trade decisions as the movie progressed, and how the markets were reacting to the news each day. Some truly horrifying days back then in Sep 08.

Mike your right. This is an awesome movie. For those who don't have HBO or would like another version, Frontline also did a piece on this

Also, there are some other great economic videos at this site:

And none of these CORRUPT Bastards are being investigated...Dick Fuld didn't lose any of his money but everyone in Lehman did!!! Corruption doesn't happen overnight...it starts small and grows...LAW of SCALE!

It annoyed me that there was no mention of Hank Paulson, who made 500 million working for GS, turning it into a billion+ shorting AIG in 2008.

You would not have thought that was the case from this movie.

I believe he had to sell all his GS stock when he became Treasury Secretary. Tax free....
