CAST & CREW
Well! Well! Stocks, market crashes, agonies resulting from unexpected huge losses in profits; an unexpected jackpot in the same; hopes crashing, tables turning; perspirations of anger, confusion, happiness all engulfing one on the same time!!
How enchanting? But this sure is no fairytale but a truth; an ugly truth that has got no buyers but all sellers. Wall Street: Money never sleeps is quite apt for the above mentioned.
This story takes you a tour around to stock markets and also to the king of them all, yes the Wall Street, known to make so many people grow filthy rich in a matter of seconds and some who take less than a second to become a pauper. But that’s not all, in this movie it is also about those bad times that Wall Street has faced, crisis spreading its nasty wings to swoop down on Wall Street claiming everything it has. And of course, who could forget the Wall Street crash, the biggest disaster that occurred in the history of economy, which caused the economic depression for 10 years?
Let us get down to the main storyline which comprises Gordon Gecko(Michael Douglas) who is an ambitious business person, and our hero Jake Moore(Shia LaBeouf), a young trader, who has just stepped into stock market trading and wants to make it big in the money making. Also, he longs to marry Douglas’s daughter Winnie(Carry Mulligan) who is not on speaking terms with her father due to some palpable personal issues. Though Jake earns the attention of Gordon still that’s not enough, enter Breton James(Josh Brolin) who is the chief antagonist trying to belittle and snatch the business out of gecko’s hands, eventually resulting in a churning out of business battles.
The cinematography of this movie is excellent, everything is pictured perfectly, traders rushing helplessly to check with their money made, this film has fantastic cinematography captured.
This movie has emotional quotients too intertwined moderately with the business hustle-bustle, Gecko’s daughter not on talking terms with her father just because he did something terrible to her brother is one such example that can also be related to in real life. But the movie also gives a sense of hope that whatever the situation or no matter how much this business world has demolished relationships there is still a way, a chance to reconcile with your loved ones that are clearly uplifted in the conclusion of this movie.
The main characters in the movie have brilliantly carried their respective acts each justifying their characters in the position.
Watch this movie if you want to have a taste of money, anger, intelligence, emotions, greed all mixed into one and of course, the evergreen WALL STREET.
