It’s (almost) always a pleasure to watch Jodie Foster’s directorial efforts, especially when they feature actors like George Clooney and Julia Roberts. This is the studio version of films like The Big Short and Margin Call, which is not necessarily a bad thing for those of us for whom “credit default swaps,” and “synthetic collateralized debt obligations” induce migraines. Eagle-eyed fans of Outlander will spot its wonderful lead, Catriona Balfe, in a supporting role.—Peter Biskind

“…this speedy, self-assured thriller, nimbly directed by Jodie Foster…looses bullhorn blasts of topical outrage on matters of grave public concern.”—A.O. Scott, New York Times

“Jodie Foster’s superb thriller Money Monster [is] a movie of the moment: an expertly made state-of-the-nation popcorn flick…”—Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
