Adam McKay’s brilliant film about the financial crisis of 2008 is hugely enjoyable as a satirical comedic drama. Ryan Gosling, Steve Carrel and Christian Bale have won rave reviews for their performances and the film, which won the PGA Award, could win Best Picture come February 28.
The Big Short picked up five Oscar nominations including Best Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay. Revisit Sasha’s original review of The Big Short, The Case For The Big Short and a piece from The Guardian as to why the film should win Best Picture.
