Last Days of Lehman, the Movie

Published: Sep 10, 2009


I’m nine minutes into this piece of celluloid produced by the BBC and though The Last Days of Lehman Brothers is certainly not going to win any awards, especially none for the actor who seems to be conjuring Fred Flintstone for his depiction of ex-Lehman CEO Dick Fuld, it's well worth your time, if only to take a look at the actors who do and don’t resemble the real life chiefs they embody on film and to watch the always good at playing evil James Cromwell deliver a boardroom monologue in front of the banking world's most powerful CEOs as ex-Treasury Secretary Hank "the Hammer" Paulson.

Enjoy the show.
