I have come to loath Oliver Stone's films, and this is no exception. Douglas certainly deserved high praise as the sleazeball Gecko; I remember being blown away by his performance.

Il più ricco 1% del paese possiede metà della ricchezza del paese, 5 trilioni di dollari. Un terzo di questi viene dal duro lavoro, 2/3 dai beni ereditati, interessi sugli interessi accumulati da vedove e figli idioti, e dal mio lavoro, la speculazione mobiliare-immobiliare. È una stronzata, c'è il 90% degli americani là fuori che è nullatenente o quasi. Io non creo niente, io posseggo.
I don't like Oliver Stone, but he made something great here, and it's all because of how awesome Michael Douglas is at convincing us greed is good. This film is an important part of pop culture, and I've always wanted a big blocky phone.
