The Big Short was hard to follow and, I think, massively overrated. Based on the American crisis of 2005, there were good individual performances from a strong cast, and I did laugh about 7 times, but to me it was one, long, aggressive Powerpoint Presentation. What the hell is going on? Do these people all know each other? They don’t? They do? Why isn’t that man wearing shoes? I don’t know. It was kind of aesthetically pleasing, and well directed, but I personally don’t think it was in the same calibre of film as others nominated for Best Picture.
