Running Time: 130 minutes

Anchorman collides with Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, to provide this one of a kind mash-up of black humor and High (Low?) Finance 101 that will make you laugh out loud through your tears. If all the king’s men and women couldn’t put Humpty together again, at least Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and Selena Gomez can skewer the Wall Streeters who gave us the 2008 financial collapse, while at the same time explaining credit-default swaps and collateralized debt obligations. Nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.—Peter Biskind

“A true crime story and a madcap comedy, a heist movie and a scalding polemic, The Big Short will affirm your deepest cynicism about Wall Street while simultaneously restoring your faith in Hollywood.”—A.O. Scott, New York Times

“Only in America … could filmmakers illuminate such a dire subject, and the financial debacle that ensued, with the sort of scathing wit, joyous irreverence and brilliant boisterousness that make The Big Short an improbable triumph.”—Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“McKay invents his own glorious goofball syntax: part business thriller, part stand-up comedy, with a liberal dash of NPR didacticism.”—David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Nominated for a Best Picture Oscar, Brooklyn is an unapologetic, unassuming, old-fashioned love story that will leave you with a glow, a small miracle considering the sturm und drang enveloping several of the holiday movies. No humans were harmed over the course of the production.—Peter Biskind

Brooklyn is a lovely film… Set in its titular borough and in a small Irish town in the early 1950s, it is both sharply observed and gently nostalgic.”—A.O. Scott, New York Times

“It’s a measure of [Saorise Ronan’s] power and of the spell cast by this lovely movie that for hours, maybe days after you leave the theater, you’ll want to stick around and find out what’s around the corner for this now voyager.”—Ella Taylor, NPR

Saoirse Ronan lights up the screen in the year’s best and most beguiling love story.”—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
