Margin Call: A look at the parasitical one percent

The release of Margin Call—which fictionally (and rather scathingly) chronicles 24 hours in the life of a major Wall Street firm during the September 2008 financial crisis—in the midst of the Occupy Wall Street protests is a further indication of a change in global popular mood.

The film by J.C. Chandor of course took some time to prepare and create; it has now emerged in a situation where the hostility of millions for the bankers and the super-rich is an acknowledged fact of everyday life. It is to the credit of the filmmakers that they embarked on the project, with whatever trepidations and limitations, when they did.

Margin Call attempts to enter into the thinking, motivations and psychology of the Wall Street power brokers who helped crash the world economy in 2008.

Parasite has a different definition to me, if you return nothing to the host- your a parasite. So that would be YOU douche-bag! The 1% pay over 50% of the taxes, they feed a shitload of people. Go after the politicians if you really want to punish the criminals.

And who owns the politicians? But keep up with the foul language, it just proves the intellectual level of you trolls.

Every dime they make is produced by the international working class. This is a class of thieves. We don't need them.
