Saturday Night Cinema: Money For Nothing

I wanted to suggest the following documentary:  Money For Nothing.  Trailer is below  (Yeah, I have a few words in it).

Here’s are some reviews,:

“A timely, revealing documentary.” — Washington Diplomat

“… goes a long way to explaining the history of the Federal Reserve’s easy money policies” — Time

“revealing — and damning — indictments of mistakes the Fed made in the run-up to the crisis.” — Wall Street Journal

“A thoughtful, detailed chronicle of the Fed’s origins, responsibilities and shifting monetary policies.” — Variety

“If Fahrenheit 9/11 was Michael Moore’s seminal repudiation of George W. Bush’s foreign policy, ‘Money For Nothing’ is writer/director Jim Bruce’s similar critique of the history of The Federal Reserve.” — Business Insider

“Eye-opening, informative and detailed documentary” — IndieWire

“I advise President Barack Obama and his top economic advisers to immediately order up a private viewing of the trenchant and worrisome documentary film ‘Money For Nothing,’ before making a final decision on who the next chairman of the The Federal Reserve Bank is to be.” — Forbes

“A slick, thoughtful and alternately infuriating-and-funny documentary.” — Reuters

“It should be required viewing for the next generation of leaders, investors, and decision-makers.” — Minyanville

“A thrillingly dense documentary that will enlighten and infuriate” — CriterionCast

“Bruce has pulled together what may be the most reasoned, constructive and accessible documentary of the post-crisis genre.” — Reuters, Breakingviews

“should be required viewing for all of America’s citizens” — PA/PA Reviews

“What makes the film so convincing is its cast. There is not a single nut in the 104-minute film. It’s full of articulate economists and investors and, most importantly, Fed insiders.” — American Banker

Jack Nicholson Retiring ?

With rumors flying that Jack Nicholson will be retiring from his career of almost 60 years, we got a little nostalgic for some of his best moments. There’s a lot of innuendo, even more cursing, a whole lot of yelling, and we appreciate every bit of it.     NSFW: We’ll Never Let Go, Jack!
