"The Big Short" is a Great Financial Film

Hollywood has long been undecided about Wall Street. Finally, it has found a terrific story to tell about finance. "The Big Short" is based on Michael Lewis’s book about the debt crisis and has a starry cast including Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Christian Bale, and Brad Pitt. This article on The Economist discusses how Hollywood directors have struggled with the world of finance in the past.

I have seen reviews of The Big Short and most feel that it is the best movie centered on finance that has ever been made, although The Wolf of Wall Street perhaps wins on other criteria. I hope that they make a movie about "The Coffee Trader" a book by David Liss, which has to be the best novel I have ever read about financial matters, seconded only by his own "The Whiskey Rebels".
