Very interesting movie
13 June 2005 | by jacob-139See all my reviews

It has been some time since I saw the movie, trying to find it somewhere... it gives a very good idea of how dirty a game can be played to the costs of many... It is a very interesting story, and brought to the public almost as if it were a documentary, how people were seduced to buy stocks, how the acquisition took place, and how the "big shots" decided to drop the market so the can benefit from it as much as the want: because of this "black day" on Wall Street the world was in a financial disaster that has influenced many around the world, and destroyed the small investor.

Anyway Richard Crenna in a part that suits him well. Especially that very mean: "he he" when he talks with so much disrespect about the "fools that bought stock" I do remember very well.... after more then 20 years!
