FILM REVIEW: THE BIG SHORT
Oddball angle on GFC
Steve Carell plays Mark Baum in The Big Short.
The big screen
Don't miss The Big Short.
It has a puzzling title and deals with
a group of misfits and outsiders who
deal in collateralised debt obligation,
sub-prime mortgages and credit debt
On top of that, the film is structured
as a quasi-documentary style comedic
Your eyes have already glazed over.
Well, unglaze them.
Don't let those obstacles prevent
you from seeing The Big Short.
It investigates the Global Financial
Crisis by using a manic style and
focusing the issues through the eyes of
some unscrupulous profiteers at
Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley,
who predict the collapse of the
mortgage sector in American banking
years before it happens.
Banker Jared Vennett, investor
Mark Baum and market analyst
Michael Burry crunch numbers and
discover the secret underlying sub-
prime loans and decide to sell short.
Your eyes are glazing over again.
These greedy corporate beasts
immediately see an opportunity to
make wads of money from their
predictions and confirm the mantra
that greed is good.
However, one person, Mark Baum,
in a top-notch performance by Steve
Carell, sees the devastating impact this
mortgage collapse will have on
ordinary working class people who
will lose their homes and jobs. It
becomes a moral conundrum.
Director Adam McKay takes the
approach that because the issues are so
serious, he's going to make it funny.
He allows Vennett to speak directly
to the audience and uses Margot
Robbie in a bubble bath and chef
Anthony Bourdain talking about fish
stew to explain financial concepts.
Along with Steve Carell, Ryan
Gosling, Christian Bale and Brad Pitt
The film won't reveal anything new
about the GFC but it will present it
from an oddball angle that keeps you
transfixed and entertained.
If you don't see The Big Short you
will be selling yourself short.
Rock'n'roll comes to Southern Cross Club
It was a pokey rented space on Union
Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee where
rock'n'roll was born.
Sun Records was where Sam
Phillips helped some of the brightest
stars in the entertainment industry get
their start. It was home to Elvis
Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison,
Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.
Direct from the USA, the Australian
tour of The Sun Records All-Stars will
arrive in Canberra's Southern Cross
Club on Wednesday, February 24.
The show traces rock'n'roll from its
humble roots to its dramatic peak as a
worldwide musical phenomenon.
Bill Culp plays Carl Perkins and
said he was looking forward to leaving
behind the frigid temperatures of the
northern hemisphere behind to soak up
some summer sun in Australia.
Culp devours modern music history
and said Australian crowds would be
pleased the greatest hits show also
shared some of the lesser-known tales
of the genre's formative artists.
"You enjoy it more if you learn a bit
about the music and performers during
the show," he said.
Blue Suede Shoes is the most
recognisable Perkins songs, but he was
a proficient writer and many of his
tracks were recorded or covered by
artists and friends including Elvis
Presley, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and
The Sun Record All-Stars on
February 24 at 8pm at Southern
