Besides the movie “Margin Call”, I recommend this Oscar-winning documentary “Inside Job” which won the Oscar Best Documentary Film in February 2011. I borrowed the “Inside Job” DVD from public library. I also recommend watching the “Special Features: Deleted Scenes” from the DVD.
You can view the Oscar-winning “Inside Job” documentary via this link (without the excellent DVD Special Features, though):

HIGHLIGHTS from the Reuters article:
Meanwhile, Roadside Attractions co-president Howard Cohen told TheWrap, “It’s amazing. We’re very happy,” speaking of the opening box office for the Kevin Spacey-led “Margin Call.”
“It was a double-edged sword,” he said. “We were worried that … people would feel like it was everywhere in the news, and they didn’t want to see a movie about it, but what it did get us was an enormous amount of publicity.”
On VOD, the movie costs $7. Yet Cohen said it will be on 135 screens beginning October 28, and will probably expand to 200 screens.
J.C. Chandor wrote “Margin Call,” which stars Spacey, Zachary Quinto, Jeremy Irons, Stanley Tucci and Demi Moore, among others.
