The scariest horror film of the season doesn’t feature toolshed torture or a South Korean sea monster. It’s this nonfiction look at the banks and the credit-card companies that stalk middle- and low-income Americans, dangling piles of approved credit in front of them and then jacking up the interest rates like loan sharks. It’s true, of course, that no one forces people to take these deals, but Maxed Out, while occasionally muddled in its financial details, presents a more-accurate-than-not vision of a nation that is starting to look like a candidate for rehab, on both an individual and a national level, for its addiction to debt.
