“Here’s a heads-up on Ross Ashcroft‘s Four Horsemen, a very good documentary that I caught tonight at the Curzon Soho premiere,” writes the London-based Toby Macdonald. “It’s like a more doom-laden and oddly more inspiring version of the excellent Inside Job, and I think it would be right up your alley.
“It chronicles the gangster banks, the end of empire and the terrible victory of crony capitalism. It has some brilliant heavyweight interviewees, and it puts forward solutions too which seems very brave for a documentary these days. It feels very appropriate on the day that the Vampire Squid, which has massive sway here in London, took a hit.”
He’s referring to Greg Smith‘s 3.14 N.Y. Times op-ed piece, “Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs.”
