Margin call by J. C Chandor( Visual )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who cares about the suffering--existential, financial, or other--of those who blindly mismanaged our monies into this ever-expanding, nay, verily bottomless pit of debt? No one, but this film may help viewers understand A) the birth of current financial woes, and B) what it might have been like, in those first few hours within the confines of an early investment trading firm casualty. Fueled by a mass layoff, a thumb drive, and a rocket-scientist-cum-analyst who really understands the numbers, the last night of good times on Wall Street unfolds as rung by rung, up the executive ladder, travels news that is -- apocalyptic. For viewers who still have no idea of how 2008's meltdown happened, this film is one fiction that will make it ever so much more real

After the death in 2004 of American theater actor and monologist Spalding Gray, director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) pieced together a narrative of Gray's life to create the documentary And Everything is Going Fine. Brilliantly and sensitively assembled entirely from footage of Gray, taken from interviews and one-man shows from throughout his career, it is a rich, full portrait, and autobiography of sorts, of a figure who was never less than candid but retained an air of mystery

And everything is going fine( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the death in 2004 of American theater actor and monologist Spalding Gray, director Steven Soderbergh pieced together a narrative of Gray's life to create this documentary. Brilliantly and sensitively assembled entirely from footage of Gray, taken from interviews and one-man shows from throughout his career, it is a rich, full portrait, and autobiography of sorts, of a figure who was never less than candid but retained an air of mystery. In essence, this hilarious, moving, and revealing film has become Gray's final monologue

"A five-part kaleidoscope of adventurous poetry and filmmaking, from cyber-savvy Californians to the word-slamming iconoclasts of New York's Nuyorican Poets Cafe, from rappers and college professors to cowboys and school children, this eye-popping montage of people, ideas, words, accents, rhythms, and images creates a new art form: Poetry as Television, Television as Poetry. Unlike anything before it, The United States of Poetry vividly captures more the 60 of our nation's most essential heroes--our poets--in a work of startling innovation."--1996 Peabody Awards entry form
