Makes a sound case for greater regulation of financial systems.

At a time when financial regulations have been gutted, stock market indexes reel, and trade wars threaten, Jed Rothstein's slick and revealing documentary "The China Hustle" should only add to the anxiety and gloom.

The story gets a little repetitive after a while, but Rothstein does an even better job of explaining investment jargon than Adam McKay did in The Big Short, and he doesn't require gimmicks like putting Margot Robbie into a bathtub to do so.

Rothstein's irreverent, can-you-believe-this sense of humor makes the anti-capitalist message go down even easier.
