On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
Hopefully you’ve had a chance to see The Big Short. The more we think about it, the more we love it. What a great oddball film that bounces around genres seamlessly and still managed to entertain and educate (see also. edutainment). The film had us chuckling throughout so much that it wasn’t until the very end that we realized we should have been crying the entire time. Adam McKay does a marvelous job of letting us into the high-stakes world of investment banking and shows us that all the warning signs were there, but human greed and arrogance are things we’ll never escape.
