    Documentarian Charles Ferguson interviews politicians, therapists, madams, economists, lawyers and professors to get insight on what exactly led to the global economic meltdown and how it could've been avoided. Narrated by Matt Damon. (Published Tuesday, Aug 24, 2010)

    Matt Damon serves as narrator for documentarian Charles Ferguson's new film, "Inside Job," a look at the series of events - and non-events -- that sent the world's economy circling the drain.

    Ferguson interviews everyone from Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Rep. Barney Frank, to former New York Attorney General and Governor Eliot Spitzer to Wall Street madam Kristin Davis to learn what led to the catastrophe and about the lifestyles of the men behind it.

    In the production notes, Ferguson states that he set out "to provide a comprehensive portrayal of...the worst financial crisis since the Depression," adding that he hopes "that after seeing this film we can all agree on the importance of restoring honesty and stability to our financial system, and of holding accountable those to destroyed it."
