'Inside Job' Trailer: New Documentary Investigates The Financial Crisis (VIDEO)

The trailer for Charles Ferguson's new documentary "Inside Job" has been making its way around the web (hat tip to Nouriel Roubini's Twitter feed). The film has been getting serious love from critics, including winning the top award at Cannes this year.

Roger Ebert called the the film "devastating" summed it up this way in May:

"From Roosevelt until Reagan, the American economy enjoyed 40 years of stability, prosperity and growth. Beginning with Reagan's moves against financial regulation, that sound base has been progressively eroded. The crucial federal error (in administrations of both parties) was to allow financial institutions to trade on their own behalf. Today many large trading banks are betting against their own customers."

"Inside Job" is due out in October. WATCH the trailer:
