I went to see the new Gekko film, "Wall Street", and did not like it. First of all, it was too fast for me, I had difficulty catching what was going on. I did not like the unending, impressionistic, meaningless, visual phantasies of Manhattan and Wall Street. The persona of the young investment banker specialized in Green Energy - an idealist - is absurd. The road show pitching a fusion project to the Chinese is ridiculous. Chinese are polite and patient, a Chinese will never stand up at the beginning of a meeting. The giving of the presents was right but unceremonial, too fast.
Best I liked Eli Wallach as the elder investor at the Fed meeting. He is a very good actor (and being an old Jew myself, I show him also as he probably sees himself: young and sexy.)
