The first person fired by the big investment bank in “Margin Call’’ is a risk analyst. His name is Eric Dale (Stanley Tucci), he’s been researching some bad news, and, freshly sacked, promptly disappears the way some animals head for the hills before a natural disaster. The disaster here is hardly natural, and the movie, by a first-time writer-director named J.C. Chandor, hunkers down in the bank’s risk management wing in order to spin drama from invisible money and an assortment of actors attempting to mine theater from banker jargon. In the case of Jeremy Irons playing the aloof English billionaire who owns the bank, that’s dinner theater. But it’s of the highest caliber.
