The Big Short, 2015 - ★★★★

The Big Short is a huge amount of fun until you remember it's a true story and then it's depressingly horrific. The biggest problem is not that everybody in the film is a bad person but they are presented as some kind of do-gooder hero which (spoilers) just isn't the case.

I've heard a lot about how this and Spotlight could be considered televisual rather than cinematic and I have to disagree. There's something special about the deliberately sloppy shooting and touches such as breaking the fourth wall that really stand out on the big screen.
