    movies about wallstreet

    Just thought i'd list movies who's theme is about wall street or the investment industry.

    Trading Places - True classic from 1983, its a comedy based on the famous Turtles story.

    Wall Street - A great movie about wall street back from 1987, Michael Douglas's role as the ruthless wall street tycoon "Gordon Gecko" is arguably his best performance. After the movie came out a lot of famous people on wall street wrote books to dispel the myth that Gordon Gecko had created about the dishonesty and brutality of wall street biggies. Dialogues from the movie like "we bet on sure things ......" are quoted to this day. Its a must watch

    Wall Street 2 - Just released, haven't seen it yet but reports are it lives up to the original movie.

    Feel free to list any other movies you might have seen along with a short description.

    Boiler room - Not strictly Wall Street but still on the same lines. A morally decent college dropout finds himself at conflict with his harsh federal judge father. He gets a job as a stock broker and gets on the fast track to success. Only things take a turn for the worst when he learns that his job isn't what's it cracked up to be. Stars Giovanni Ribisi, Vin Diesel and Ben Affleck. And in one of the scenes they watch (and quote) Wall Street.

    Floored (2010)

    This is a documentary about the old style pit traders in Chicago and the mind-shift needed for them to come to terms with the electronic age which makes interesting viewing. Not easy to watch at times because this shows the reality of professional trading, warts and all.

    Most of the episodes are available on-line here:

    I was recommended the movie '21' - it's on blackjack and counting cards, based on a true story if I remember correctly.
