- Michael Douglas as "Gordon Gekko" is one of the most memorable characters from the 'golden-era'. His charm, his style, his arrogance, his slick hair, and his non-stop talking! It won him an Oscar for best Leading Actor. Greed is good!
- A year before this movie, Oliver Stone gave us his vision of Vietnam in "Platoon". 12 months later, it's his vision of Wall-Street, and it confirmed him as one of the hottest Directors in the business.
From the director of Platoon, Oliver Stone, comes a new battle set in the greatest jungle of them all, Wall Street: a place where honour is traded for power, and peace of mind for a piece of the action. Against this background, two men form a dangerous friendship - one a ruthless multi-millionaire corporate raider, the other a newly minted power hungry young broker. Two men trading their women, families and each other against all odds and every rule in the book...
The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good.
Life all comes down to a few moments. This is one of them.
Very nice. So what is it, *Mr.* Cocksucker now?
Lunch is for wimps.
