The Big Short

In the end I found myself enjoying this movie, but it took a while to get into the groove of it. At first, I was really annoyed by the editing style Adam McKay decided to use (lots of old school MTV-style cuts and non sequiturs) – it really felt forced to me, and so it just constantly took me out of the movie. But eventually I kinda locked into it, and started liking it. The use of pretty ladies to explain financial terms felt patronizing and overly sexist though.
