The new documentary "Inside Job" boasts one of the best taglines of the year: "The film that cost over $20,000,000,000,000 to make."

If you don't want to count the zeroes, that's $20 trillion with a "t." And as you watch this in-depth breakdown of the financial crisis that crippled the globe in 2008, prepare to get outraged.

Narrated by Matt Damon, it patiently and smartly lays out the roots and fallout of the crisis through extensive interviews with primary players: financial insiders and analysts, politicians, members of academia and even a Wall Street madam.

Director Charles Ferguson has crafted this film like a college lecture on the subject - albeit a surprisingly intriguing one. The nuance of high finance is explained in a way that's simple and understandable without talking down to the audience.

There are ample doses of humor and righteous indignation - watching talking heads squirm and weasel through questioning is one of the most entertaining aspects of the doc.

The most depressing aspect of watching this movie right now? Seeing it just after an election and feeling powerless to throw any of these bums out of office.
