‘The Big Short’ Breaks My Heart
Watching it after GameStop’s market surge will break yours too. But will it break it enough?
I watched The Big Short again after hearing about the GameStop frenzy. How amateur investors on Reddit and Robinhood drove up the company’s stock price and made a killing in the stock market — by outsmarting professional short-sellers at the big hedge funds. Only to see their gains plummet within a week.
The movie broke my heart when I saw it the first time in 2015. Last weekend, it broke my heart again.
