I keep seeing trailers for The Big Short, based on Michael Lewis’s book. I read the book. I liked it and thought it broke the whole subprime CDO debacle into digestible chunks for average readers like me. But I’m not sure if the book really translates into a screen narrative, at least not in a way that won’t unduly glorify a character. (I’m not sure any of the ppl involved could be vilified beyond the ugly reality of their actual greed; certainly not enough of them were prosecuted or left destitute by the sleight of hand that crashed an economy.)
