Financial Apocalypse in Rollover

Rollover didn’t exactly make major waves upon its release, but its depiction of a global financial collapse now seems chilling.

A conspiracy thriller directed by Alan Pakula, it starred Jane Fonda and Kris Kristofferson and is about the chaos unleashed by an Arab firm which decides not to redeposit (or ‘rollover’) their huge investment in a US bank, which sends Wall Street and the global financial system into meltdown.

Although the poster made it look like some kind of dodgy erotic thriller, this clip is creepy in light of the ongoing financial crisis.

In truth the film itself is not particularly good and certainly nowhere near the quality of Pakula’s other films like All the President’s Men and The Parallax View.

But riots around the world triggered by financial chaos seems awfully familiar doesn’t it?
