“Inside Job,” the Charles Ferguson film about how Wall Street got hold of our economy, looted it and left it for dead, won the Academy Award for best documentary a year ago. I don’t recall that it played in Raleigh; if it did, I missed it.*
So tomorrow, MoveOn.org is sponsoring “Inside Job” viewings in various locations, one of which is Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, 1801 Hillsborough Street. The movie starts at 4:30 p.m. MoveOn is calling this a movie party. I don’t think anybody’s going to be in a festive mood when it’s over, but spring is coming and there may be talk of Occupying … oh, I don’t know, how about Occupying the Democratic National Convention?
You can check out the “Inside Job” trailer at the Sony Classics website.
* I did see Ferguson’s first doc, “No End in Sight” (2007), which skewered the American war-industry complex and its nutty invasion of Iraq. “NEIS” was excellent. The reviews for “Inside Job” are even better.
