    I want to point out 2 things in the dynamics here: Sam is the only one in the room challenging the CEO and using Tuld's first name. This tells a lot about his standing and also about their relationship. The exchange is excellent: At first it is "Mr. Tuld", "Mr. Sullivan", "Mr. Rogers", "Ms. Robertson", with only Tuld using "Jared", "Sam", "Ramesh", in contrast to Sam who speaks up and just says "But John..."; and then "I understand." - "Do you?" - DO YOU!!??". Compare this with the other people keeping their heads down, not wanting to be in the line of fire. Secondly, Sam is the only one in the room dressed in an old school way. Look at his type of suit. The fit is different from modern suits, his got stripes, his shirt got stripes; his younger opponent has the cookie-cutter modern corporate ladder outfit. Whoever put this together clearly knows such meetings really well and how "high finance" personalities carry themselves and what the dynamics can be between them.

    @grafficacma I've seen rudeness and stubbornness in meetings, but people in charge tend to keep a lid on their outburst levels. In this case, I felt like Jeremy Irons just wanted some hot sauce on a few of his lines. Hard to say, though - maybe the director wanted it up a notch in those parts. I don't know.

    3:40 - "You're speaking with me, Mister Sullivan." That simple sentence, while addressed to Sullivan, was actually aimed at the other executives, reminding them who was in charge. Irons does this scene magnificently. He portrays the ruthlessly capable corporate leader perfectly - in control, handling his subordinates with subtlety instead of noise or aggression, listening to everything they say, assimilating their input as the meeting progresses, and making on the spot decisions with the swiftness of an experienced leader.

    Not exactly, but yes it's a great story. It's _loosely_ based on the Lehman Bros debacle of 2008. The scriptwriter even took the liberty of naming Irons' character "Tuld" after Lehman CEO Dick Fuld. 🤣 The BIG difference is that Fuld was told by scores of people under him and at Treasury to dump Lehman's toxic mortgage-backed bonds and sell his firm at a reasonable price. But Fuld was far too selfish and greedy to do that at the prices he was offered that first week of Sept 2008 and prior. Then, at the last minute on the 2nd weekend after the heads of all the other major US wire houses met with Treasury chief Hank Paulson, Fuld wanted to broker a deal with a Japanese bank which had shown interest in buying Lehman. But it was too late; that bank had lost interest because Lehman's stock had fallen so precipitously fast, and they were rightfully scared that the toxic assets were worth even less than the book value Lehman had assigned them. So instead of drafting a letter of intent to sell, Lehman counsel had to finish that weekend preparing the largest bankruptcy filing in history; basically over 25,000 employees lost their jobs the next day (9/15/08). Wall Street went into a panic, and the stock market into a tailspin that took years to recover from. TLDR -- Had Dick Fuld done what fictional Tuld did (sell the toxic assets off in pieces before the rest of the market knew how bad they really were), OR sold Lehman earlier, the company might have survived in some form, many of those jobs likely would've been saved, and perhaps the financial crisis wouldn't have been as bad as it turned out to be.

    The look on Tuld's face upon learning that his senior managers had dismissed the one individual who possessed unparalleled insight into the situation, except perhaps for himself, is priceless. He is acutely aware of the reasons behind their decision, yet as a CEO striving to rescue his company, he also feels an overwelming sense of disappointment in their immature behavior. They can't even manage to handle that aspect correctly while he wasn”t there and the manner in which he overrules their decision and demands his presense is just another display of him completely dominating the room by gestures alone.

    The CEO is not concerned about the firing but more about the information leak from Eric Dale, if he gets in contact with some other entity. They were all making good money but knew it would not last long. Eric Dale was fired because he wanted to stop risky behaviour, but others still wanted to make money. The problem with Eric Dale was, he could not figure out exactly, how much risk the company was in. He did not have a concrete model. This is where Sullivan came in, and provided an exact solution. The result was that, if they don't deal with this immediately, the upcoming loss would be insurmountable.

He's playing the scene as a wolf in sheep's clothing; the way he talks makes it initially seem like he's kind of a detached know nothing who doesn't understand what's going on, and is just trying to figure out what to do, but if you rewatch it a couple times and play close attention, he already knows what the issue is and what the solution is. He's been preparing for this eventuality for some time, the sole purpose of this meeting is for him to convince Sam to do it. He uses affects like malapropisms and asking for things to be explained like he's an idiot, but he knew before the meeting started that "the music had stopped" and they needed to take decisive action to survive. He leads Jared into suggesting to sell by prompting him about being first, and he asks questions he knows the answer to Ramesh in order to prove to Sam that it can be done. If you were in that situation on the board, he's simplified the problem and shown that it can only be solved by taking an action that would otherwise be so distasteful it wouldn't be considered

    This is exactly how CEO's behave on meetings. It's a great advice to anyone, when meeting someone on that level, remember to be clear, no sugarcoat, and answer to the best of your ability. They are there to make decisions, and will take everything you say seriously and will challenge you upon it. Terrific scene, for sure!

    One of the most underrated movies of the 21st century. It didn't do so well at the box office because it lacked car chases, explosions, and murder. Most people don't understand the impact of the securitization of mortgage-backed securities and its role in the 2008 financial crisis. Not very exciting for the typical moviegoer, but I found it exhilarating, well written, and outstanding acting especially by Jeremy Irons. I've never seen Irons in a bad movie.

I found it very interesting because I know next to nothing about the world of finance. I remember telling a an old boyfriend of mine back in the late '80's that most movie-goers like action-packed movies with lots of dazzling explosions, pyrotechnics, and half-clothed women. Movies like Margin Call appeal only to more cerebral individuals who like to think while being entertained.

It's just not the kind of movie that is going to draw lots of people or make a lot of money, in a sense the movie is boring, it takes place essentially over the course of one day and it's all just a lot of talking, not really what many people want in a movie. However if you want to get a small idea of what the hell happened it's an amazing movie.

    The mortgage backed securities was just the match that lit the crisis ---- this was not the problem, the problem was when the repo markets seized. Repo markets are what run the world and this is what was what the bankers were really afraid of --- nobody was willing to give anyone over night credit and this would have shut down ALL OF WORLD COMMERCE. Reason why no banks were willing to extend credit is because these derivatives are all opaque and no bank knew the exposure any other bank had to this toxic mortgage backed securities thus they would not lend to each other. This is why FED and other central bankers has to flood markets with liquidity. Guess what?? These markets have never functioned properly since and when the next crash comes -- it will stop commerce. Bankers are nothing but dressed up smart criminals --- they have brought havoc and pain and suffering on the world for centuries (they are behind every war and almost every crisis) ---- IT IS TIME THIS STOPS. Block Chain tech will reduce back to what they should be a well regulated utility. BANKERS ARE SCUM BAGS --- no if, buts or whats --- SCUM BAGS.

How jeremy irons use eye contact as an acknowledgement, empathy and use hard stare as a form of dominance. How kevin spacey's character subtly assures his employee to be confident. How to acquire information in decision making by downplaying one's ability while maintaining reputation. How to establish hierarchical dominance and send the signals of fairness even though Iron's character is an amoral one. How to simplify a complex topic and present it well to layman through analogies and facts. Look at the eye contact, hear the voice and feel the tension. This scene is masterpiece.

    You notice so many little things in this scene the more you watch - a small facial expression here, an uncomfortable body movement there - that you realize just how much depth there is to it all. At 4:37 for example, in three or four lines of dialogue, this scene tells us so much. Consider: 1. Tuld comes right out and says the music is about to stop, and we're all gonna be left holding the bag. 2. The inexperienced junior analyst who's never seen this situation play out before tries to reassure him that the music hasn't stopped yet, it's just slowing down. If the music were to stop, that'd be a complete disaster. 3. As he explains this, Sam leans back, like he knows exactly where this is going. A young buck who doesn't see the whole picture, and the ruthless CEO who is about to put a full stop to this whole conversation. He's known Tuld for almost four decades and can see a moment like this coming. 4. The scene cuts to Tuld with an almost parental like smirk on his face. He gets the chance to explain how this all works to the young guy, not to Sam, not to Cohen, or anyone who will bring any baggage to the situation. His response silences the room.

    One of the best moments is when Irons asks "Sullivan" for his opinion. Sullivan looks over to the two honchos (Demi and the other guy), Irons sees that Sullivan is intimidated by them, and says directly to Sullivan, "You're speaking to me." He then keeps focused on Sullivan but after a few seconds casts a sideways glance at Demi and the guy as if to say "knock it off." I don't know if that level of detail was in the script, but if not, it shows how deep Irons was into this.

    This is a marterclass Tuld knew exactly what had to be done - "sell it all, Today" But actually led the coversation to it while letting others sink in what was about to happen And then finally makes Jared say the words And at the moment Jared shows why is at such a senior position at a young age He didn't look at anyone except for Tuld, was concise, spoken with a firmness and no hesitation. Edit : And the very next moment Tuld asks Sam if that was even possible His answer could have been a simple "Yes" But he adds in "at what cost?" That is a contrast to Jared's character, Sam is also older and worked for the firm for a much longer time. So this moments show why he isn't sitting at Jared's place But that "at what cost?" Shows he had a little bit of integrity left after all those years in the business. So there comes the duality of being righteous or doing what needs to be done So in a crunch situation, duality in character would never lead to anything. Do what needs to be done But then Sam stand up and tells exactly what needs to be done in terms of trades Shows why he is the head of trading, technically Will is, but it is Sam

    Good catch! Exactly! I didn't notice that. The Wolf in Golden Retriever Clothing. In Truth, this is exactly how a ruthless, adept and keenly socially intelligent CEO should act. Notice how he treats all his employees differently because he knows exactly how to act to get the best out of each one and their individual personalities. He is fair and tries to act as unintimidating as possible for his rank and file analyst to get the clear information and frank conversation he wants, he rewards him not only with his subtle approval but also promotes him later to an exec position for basically saving the company. 6:08 I also love how the subtly contrasted Peter Sullivan with Seth's attire. Everyone in the room is in suit and tie like an adult, but Seth is tieless like a disheveled adolescent frat boy and has dazed and confused body language.

    This scene is perfect, I have been in very uncomfortable meetings before with directors and senior management, Jeremy Irons is amazing here how accurately he portrays as the senior head in the meeting. Asking questions of which he already knows the answers too, he understands the pack that was created will be filled with cooperate bs, his job is to find the problem and tackle it ASAP, not sitting reading through a booklet for hours whilst everyone in the room have and should have already done so. That is why he is asking the questions, ensuring that everyone is on the same page, testing people to see if they are on their toes or not. Its discreet but its noticeable, he directs his questions to people he knows that SHOULD have the answer. He simply has not fell into his very senior role out of luck, he knows the game inside-out, the reason he wanted things in 'plain english' was to, again, understand the core problem to the mess they have found without time wasting any longer, and to get everyone there up to speed with his mindest and plan of approach. By far one of the best scenes I have seen, the tension in the air is so intense, them slight blips of silence in conversation is what is great too, so accurate yet so understanding of how these are conducted. Everyone their is on their A game. Great film.

    @@Wildlander I feel you make some really good points here, "incompetent CEOs" very much exist with respect to "entitlement and good business decisions" but I'm going to have to disagree with your overarching thesis here, that this is the case at large a lot of this "incompetence" you highlight is from the perspective of the stakeholders and the customers (and even management). But from the persepective of the Board and or the Shareholders this might not be the case. Sometimes the CEO is there as a fall guy for PR. Sometimes they are there to come in and fix a problem. sometimes they are there to ensure the problem produces the optimum results (sociopolitical plays) Look at Banking Sector disparities aftermath in 2008 for the premier example of this. how much of the time, i can not be certain. what i am certain of, however: is that the majority of CEOs are capable thinkers and leaders communicators. it would be far more accurate to say by and large CEOs have their sht together and can be counted on to keep sht together...but there exists some, for a multitude of different reasons, who don't have the chops, ethical or capable or otherwise to hold that seat.

He alludes to this in his steak scene with Kevin Spacey too....its basically a market correction that comes every 15 to 20 years. It was really a matter of time by insuring crap mortgages, world economy crash, Ukraine & hyper inflation, 911, student loan defaults, Covid.....any of these can trigger a larger market correction.

    Between 3:30 and 3:52 is the most brilliant small tone acting anyone might see in a long long time. He notices the advisor making side eye contact as if to a boss on to the wolves left of court, Irons draws his gaze back to him and states that he’s the only person in the room. Irons then looks at the wolves to catch heir deceptions. Immaculate work. Spacey is an example here of art not being removed by personal life action. We cannot remove the beauty from a price of work once we’ve let it go. As an artist, no one can take away his gift.

That is why in Tuld's mind, probably what he is about to do is not cheating, although for the viewer it clearly is.
