Time Out says
The performances are as meaty as you’d hope, and the script offers plenty of pseudo-Mamet jostling and the kind of procedural niceties that make, say, James B Stewart’s business articles for the New Yorker so compellingly accessible. Missing, however, are the outsider eye and moral perspective of, for example, John Lanchester’s writing about the crisis. ‘Margin Call’ presents Wall Street on its own terms even in meltdown – not uncritically but claustrophobically, like a Mob movie indifferent to victims of crime. It’s unclear whether the picture realises how bitter a taste this leaves.
