Director of the The Big Short Adam McKay on financial crash

Adam McKay, director of Oscar-nominated film The Big Short, joined This Week for the Spotlight discussion about the financial crash.

In a discussion with Andrew Neil, Liz Kendall and Michael Portillo, he recalled the 2007-08 crash - the subject of his film - and warned the size of US banks today was "incredibly dangerous".

He said the rise of Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump reflected the anger that remained in the US as a result of flat wages.
