Fell asleep halfway through this but it's not the movie's fault. This was like Big Short meets Fast Food Nation, halfway between separate vignettes and a TED talk. I liked this... but have mixed feelings overall about the whole Big Short type of thing where these issues in the news are now so complicated that it takes a movie to explain to people. On one hand, they're necessary and done well to explain issues in a way that entertains as well as educates, but on the other they're so damn bleak because it means the first world is in such a trash heap that people don't even understand how they're getting fucked anymore.

But anyway, Soderbergh's fun to watch. Love the 4th wall breaking stuff. Meryl Streep is good, as is Gary Oldman (i know, shock). Lots of familiar faces in there... I like the Will Forte and Chris Parnell parts in particular... but it does feel like... 20% a homework assignment. This would be great to see in highschool on a day when the teacher's out sick, but kind of a drag for DVRfest.

Speaking of highschool, next up is a documentary that I missed out on kickstarting but, years later, got the blu-ray when it finally went on sale on their website.
