Eviction, desperation artfully driven home | TBO.com and The Tampa Tribune

Ramin Bahrani’s “99 Homes” throbs with the public fury and private horror of the real-estate collapse.

Set in Orlando suburbs, the movie plunges into the ugly, contentious dramas of foreclosure. It’s a war movie where thresholds are the battle lines.

“This is our home!” cries Andrew Garfield’s Dennis Nash from his doorway when police and a real estate broker for the bank, Rick Carver (Michael Shannon), gather on his lawn to evict him, his young son (Noah Lomax) and his mother (Laura Dern).

  1. Home ownership? From the time one signs on the dotted line when buying the home, the system is rigged against you. From the way the loan is structured to pay the majority of the interest before the principle so that you will pay about double the purchase price at the end of 30 years, to the snake in the grass terms, especially If the loan is adjustable. And how about the “lender” turning YOUR signature into a mortgage backed security and selling it as STOCK on wall street?…Where it is further fractionated into a dozen more monetary interests to siphon more wealth from you. Did you know that is what you were signing? Did you believe the bank when they said that one had to be in arrears to qualify for help, when the banks and wall street conspired to cheat you once again?
    Is that what the movie is about? Has anything changed at all? I think not.
