Let's Make Money 

Directed by Erwin Wagenhofer (Mongrel)

The cover for Austrian documentary Let's Make Money calls the film "a must-see primer for understanding the global financial crisis." That description's somewhat disingenuous; Let's Make Money bandies about poorly defined terms like "protectionism" and "private equity" too liberally to be considered an accessible intro. (Track down the Peabody-winning This American Life episode "The Giant Pool of Money" instead.) Then, ignore that lying cover and give Let's Make Money a chance. Director Erwin Wagenhofer accomplishes something amazing: Using inventive entry points and interviews, he gives an overdone doc subject (globalization's exploitative! The rich are getting richer!) new vigour. I'm cheesed right now!
