Charles Ferguson's amazingly lucid and compelling account of the corruption of America's financial system topped off a terrific year for documentaries, including Davis Guggenheim's "Waiting for Superman" and Alex Gibney's "Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer." Every choice Ferguson makes is inspired, from starting off in Iceland for a study of one of the system's victims -- in this case, an entire country -- to taking on the bogus authority of academic economists.
