Wall Street's "Inside Job": Movie party Saturday at Pullen Baptist



"Inside Job," the Charles Ferguson film about how Wall Street got hold of our economy, looted it and left it for dead, won the Academy Award for best documentary a year ago. I don't recall that it played in Raleigh; if it did, I missed it.*

So tomorrow, MoveOn.org is sponsoring "Inside Job" viewings in various locations, one of which is Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, 1801 Hillsborough Street. The movie starts at 4:30 p.m. MoveOn is calling this a movie party. I don't think anybody's going to be in a festive mood when it's over, but spring is coming and there may be talk of Occupying ... oh, I don't know, how about Occupying the Democratic National Convention?

You can check out the "Inside Job" trailer at the Sony Classics website.

* I did see Ferguson's first doc, "No End in Sight" (2007), which skewered the American war-industry complex and its nutty invasion of Iraq. "NEIS" was excellent. The reviews for "Inside Job" are even better.
