Three separate but parallel stories of the U.S mortgage housing crisis of 2005 are told. Michael Burry, an eccentric ex-physician turned one-eyed Scion Capital hedge fund manager, has traded traditional office attire for shorts, bare feet and a Supercuts haircut. He believes that the US housing market is built on a bubble that will burst within the next few years. Autonomy within the company allows Burry to do largely as he pleases, so Burry proceeds to bet against the housing market with the banks, who are more than happy to accept his proposal for something that has never happened in American history. The banks believe that Burry is a crackpot and therefore are confident in that they will win the deal. Jared Vennett with Deutschebank gets wind of what Burry is doing and, as an investor believes he too can cash in on Burry's beliefs. An errant telephone call to FrontPoint Partners gets this information into the hands of Mark Baum, an idealist who is fed up with the corruption in the financial industry. Baum and his associates, who work at an arms length under Morgan Stanley, decide to join forces with Vennett despite not totally trusting him. In addition to Burry's information, they further believe that most of the mortgages are overrated by the bond agencies, with the banks collating all the sub-prime mortgages under AAA packages. Charlie Geller and Jamie Shipley, who are minor players in a $30 million start-up garage company called Brownfield, get a hold of Vennett's prospectus on the matter. Wanting in on the action but not having the official clout to play, they decide to call an old "friend", retired investment banker Ben Rickert, to help out. All three of these groups work on the premise that the banks are stupid and don't know what's going on, while for them to win, the general economy has to lose, which means the suffering of the general investor who trusts the financial institutions. That latter aspect may not sit well with Baum. Some of these assumptions may be incorrect and may be far more manipulative than they could have ever imagined, which in turn may throw curves into the process.

I don't know how this film is rated so low. I would give it an 8.5. It is a very well-written, well-acted, well-directed, well-edited film. It is about a very important topic, the financial crisis of 2008. The film was well-produced, well-directed, and well-acted. The characters were very well-developed, and the film was very interesting. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a well-done film.

This is a movie that is very entertaining. The movie is about the financial crisis of 2008 and the impact it had on the U.S. economy. It's not the most realistic movie I have ever seen, but it is a good movie. It is definitely worth seeing.

This movie was great. It was based on a true story and is based on the "Ponzi scheme" that was exposed in 2007. It was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. It was very entertaining and I recommend it to everyone. I don't know how this movie got such a low rating on IMDb. It is a great movie and I recommend it to everyone.

The Big Short is a great movie, it is the best film I have seen in a while. It is a great story of how Wall Street is run and how people can lose everything and be in control of everything. The movie is a good watch, it will keep you on your toes throughout the entire movie and it is a good movie to watch with your family. The acting was great and the movie has a good story. The movie was great, I loved it and I recommend it to everyone. I give this movie a 8 out of 10.
