5 best financial and monetary movies of all time

According to Business Insider, here are 5 most watched money and currency documentaries on Netflix.
As Netflix enhances the collection of documentaries, it can become very difficult for us to determine which movies are worth watching. Besides a lot of documentaries about every topic from health care, drug trade, there is still a flow of movies about its financial system and its chaotic history, althought they are small but worth watching.

Here are 5 most watched money-themed documentaries on Netflix.

1. ‘The True Cost‘ (Temporarily translated)


Directed by Andrew Morgan, the 2015 documentary film portrayed the harsh reality of unsustainable businesses in the garment industry. Through the talk of former employees and now, this film has lifted the mystery of the workers’ real wages behind the cheap fashion industry.

Throughout the film are haunting footage of the collapse of more than 1000 people of Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh in April 2013, images of children with deformities caused by spraying pesticides in cotton growing belts. Cotton in India, or the image of the Indian River, is full of chemical bubbles or mountains of clothes left in Haiti.

Since its inception, The True Cost has been continuously welcomed by viewers as well as raised many public debates.
2. ‘Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve’


Written and directed by Jim Bruce, the 2013 production documentary described the journey through the US Federal Reserve’s more than 100-year history and followed its consequences for the economy. America and the financial crisis in the late 2000s.

Through the words of Liev Schreiber, the film used in-depth interviews with federal officials, economists, historical researchers, investors and traders to ask questions about the global financial system as well as the way in which this system collapsed and whether it will collapse again.
3. ‘Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room’

The 2005 production film is based on the bestseller of the same name published in 2003 about Enron – the seventh largest company in the US and the wrong-doing business as well as the financial scandal that led to its bankruptcy in 2001 of this Powerful Group.

Venom-Don’t pay too much expectation but it won’t let you down

Venom is a Marvel superhero film adapted from the character of Eddie Brock – a reporter investigating the murky cases of an organization called Life Foundation – headed by Carlton Drake. On one occasion collecting important evidence at Life Foundation’s laboratory, Eddie Brock accidentally got infected with an alien parasite called symbiote. This symbiote is called Venom, constantly controlling Eddie to do things he doesn’t want to. So he had to struggle to gain control of his body, and to run away from the pursuit of Life Foundation.

Overall, Venom is a good entertainment movie, interesting plot, leading well, easy to understand, no deep messages. A purely entertaining movie that satisfies those who want to see anti-hero Venom on the screen, cynical, but nothing new. Venom begins and ends as well as many films with similar content on alien species, shady experiments in general and superhero movies in particular. Actually, there is no need to go to the theater to watch a movie, right from the trailer you can guess how the movie is. But this does not mean that we can not temporarily forget what we already know to enjoy Venom because new developments are really interesting.

Venom has some somewhat dark scenes and this makes the film rated R, extremely unfortunate. As the previous news, the movie was cut off 30-40 minutes, especially these are favorite scenes of Tom Hardy. If there scenes are not cut, the movie will definitely be more attractive. A few transitions, cut scenes are quite rough and cause viewers to be shocked, not understanding what is happening. But in general it does not affect the film in general. Fortunately, these sence are not showed much, so if you are easy going, you can completely ignore them.

Talk a little bit about Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock character. I am not a comic fan, so it is unclear what kind of person Eddie is in the original story. But in the film, this is a rather stubborn character, delinquent and often acting thoughtlessly. If this is the intention of the filmmakers to facilitate the next scene to occur, then this is still somewhat … amateur. Eddie Brock could still maintain his character if he wanted to, but the character’s actions should have been more reasonable.

Top 4 TV series that can’t be missed

1. 13 Reasons Why

Hannah Baker is a smart, cute, high school student who was loved by her friends and family. Until one day, the girl decided to commit suicide and left 13 tapes recording every reason for her to take action to end her life.

This Film for teens was produced by Netflix based on Jay Asher’s novel of the same name. It creates an empathy for many students and audiences who have been or are suffering from stress and depression. But the subject of suicide that the film mentioned also creates a huge controversy.

Many people think that 13 Reasons Why is told by Hannah’s perspective so it is full of personal blame and will easily create negative impact on young people who easily imitate the character in the movie. In addition, the depiction of depression on film is also considered superficial and not true.

2. Game of Thrones


This film is familiar with many netizens for many years. This year, the Game of Thrones issue is about whether episodes of the 7th series have been “leaked” online soon before the time due to a hacker or thanks to the reckless HBO staff in Idia.

3. Big Little Lies

Another TV transformed from novel and became a big hit. Big Little Lies is a miniseries produced by HBO based on the work of female writer Liane Moriaty. The film is about the story of beautiful housewives in a wealthy coastal town. The scence of happy families was revealed, dark secrets were showed when a single woman with her son moved to live here. To add to the drama, the film also mentioned about a lethal murder.

4. Iron Fist

Unlike the other Defenders, the Iron Fist superhero, the Marvel / Netflix series, has been sparked a controversy. The main focus of this movie is on “white-washing” from the original to the film. The image of Hollywood’s “white man” is the hero. It definitely give you a chill whenever the episodes are shown on TV
