This afternoon something I had wondered about hit my mailbox: Bailout.
Some time ago John Titus contacted me and asked if I'd be willing to appear "on camera" for a feature-length documentary he was working on. I agreed, and not too long after that the cameras showed up.
And then they went away, like they usually do.
Until this afternoon, when a DVD hit my mailbox.... the final work product.
Bailout is a different sort of film on the 2008 crisis and its causes -- most of which, as those who read me regularly know, remain un-addressed. It is a very different film than the others made on this genre as well, and doesn't pigeonhole into the usual documentary categories.
There's a story behind the story, which has a rather satisfying ending -- at the ending.
Along the way you will see a chronicle of the wreckage that the banksters have wrought upon America in all its splendor. People being kicked out of houses. Others living in trailers (camper trailers, not mobile homes.) And even a few living in the storm drains of Las Vegas.
All have a story to tell, and the storyline is punctuated with snippets of interviews from myself and a host of others, including Chris Whalen, Yves Smith, Tom Dart, Dylan Ratigan, Chris Hedges and more.
It's a superb effort -- a unique look at America and what it has become, along with the wreckage that has been laid upon the land by the kleptocracy of Wall Street and Washington DC.
Consider it today for yourself or even better -- give your favorite bankster a copy as a holiday gift.
Two thumbs up.
