Mr Debt

USA / UK, 2001 (MIFF 2001, Eyeball To Eyeball - The Many Obsessions of Errol Morris)

Director: Errol Morris

Credit Card maxxed out? Can't keep up the mortgage? Collection agents knocking at your door? Call Andrew Capoccia and within a couple of months the bank could owe you money! A white knight for the debt-ridden. Capoccia's quest is to uncover every loophole available and mount a topsy-turvy court defense to find financial institutions guilty of being stupid enough to lend you money. Hilarity and revenge against banks, it doesn't get any better than this.
