Oliver Stone's dense portrait of Wall Street broking proves little has changed in the ways of the yuppie scum since its release in the 1980s.

Examines a master/apprentice partnership, as the latter's ambition meets the former's greed. The workings of wall street are detailed, yet simplified. All of the money swapping madness is made understandable through the determination of the two main characters. The film makes a strong case agains the shady deals of insider trading. Douglas's Gordon Gecko is a memorable villainous being. He talks as a convincing businessman, but his intentions lie solely with his own gain.

Wall Street is an introspective view into the "me first" financial culture of the 80's. It's a little less controversy ridden than the usual Stone film and much more straight-forward than the director's other films. The real lynchpin of the film is the landmark performance by Michael Douglas as the slimy Gordon Gekko.
