Review | Too Big To Fail

Air Date: Monday 5/23

A vast cast (Topher Grace! Cynthia Nixon! Billy Crudup!) headlines this arresting flick about the economic meltdown of 2008. It's intriguing (and alarming) to see the nation's billionaires and financial "experts" -- Grace and Nixon click as anxious Treasury advisors -- bumble and bicker as they try to avert a global collapse. Inherently talky (the action is set mainly in boardrooms), Big nonetheless builds in suspense right up to the provocative ending. (HBO, 9 p.m.)
