You could watch these three movies as a “2008 Financial Collapse Trilogy”: Margin Call, The Big Short, 99 Homes

The 3 movies thematically tie each other together. It's actually very cohesive.

Margin Call = The Bankers set off the 2008 collapse

The Big Short = The Short Sellers take their vengeance by publicly betting against the banks during the crisis

99 homes = The aftermath of the 2008 housing collapse forces Andrew Garfield, a regular family man, to financially support his family by going into a shady real estate foreclosure business.

Margin Call gives us the perspective of the bankers, The Big Short gives us the perspective of the wall street outsiders, and 99 homes gives us a glimpse into the life of the American individual affected by the 2008 crisis.
