About the Movie

Terry Jones (Monty Python) mixes expert insight, animation, puppetry and song to explain economics to everyone. Why do crashes keep happening? Why are students taught crashes don't occur? Do you shop for grapes like a Puerto Rican monkey? A combination of playful humour and serious commentary, Boom Bust Boom draws as much on interviews and historical analysis as it does on animation, puppetry and the comedy of the absurd. With contributions from John Cusack, journalists Paul Mason and John Cassidy plus leading experts including Andy Haldane, the Chief Economist of the Bank of England and Nobel Prize winners Daniel Kahneman, Robert J. Shiller and Paul Krugman, Boom Bust Boom explains economics to everyone.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A remarkably enjoyable, and sometimes very funny, documentary about a frightening topic. – Ken Jaworowski, New York Times, Mar 10, 2016

Fresh: The point of Boom Bust Boom, a friendly little pic hosted by Monty Python's Terry Jones, is that the world is little closer to acknowledging the causes of that trauma, and until we digest its lessons, something similar is bound to happen again. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Mar 8, 2016

Fresh: Jones presents a stark picture of a bifurcated economic system: the real one, in which ordinary citizens struggle; and the financial economy, in which the livelihoods of citizens are leveraged by the wealthy for speculative bets. – Chris Packham, Village Voice, Mar 8, 2016
