I have been meaning to watch this movie ever since it came out. It did not disappoint. I was so good I watched it twice over the weekend. It is an amazing movie, Well acted and well directed, Making a movie a bout massive financial fraud, with a ton of numbers is really hard, and they did it well. My real impression from the movie is to increase my doubt about everything we are being told today. I am not a Steve Carell fan, but his performance in this movie is nothing short of amazing. Big props to the writers who made this numbers story understandable. My biggest take away from the movie is a massive doubt about everything we think we currently know about what is going on in 2021. Watch this movie.


  1. Doubt in what way about what?

  2. Everything. The movie starts with a Mark Twain quote, “It ain’t so much the things that people don’t know that makes trouble in this world, as it is the things that people know that ain’t so”. Many things we think we know, we don’t, and many of them are there if we just look.
