Cinematic Greats: Wall Street

AND SPEAKING OF Wall Street, it is a magnificent film for which Michael Douglas very deservedly won a Best Actor Oscar.  The follow-up to Platoon, it is one in a succession of great films shot by Oliver Stone through his remarkable young career.

Wall Street is also very near and dear to my heart; in college we had practically memorized it.  It even derailed one physics-major ‘buddy’ of mine (pun intended) so much that he switched to econ.  Highly recommended, very entertaining, and essential viewing.  Hitchcockian good.  Make sure to watch a crisp print.

Wall Street still
