Cast & Crew
There are times when iconic characters should be left alone to bask in the glory of a single appearance and, unfortunately, that's the case with Gordon Gekko.
Great to see Douglas back in the role that won him an Oscar. But even when he's offscreen, he's a bigger presence than LaBeouf.
Stone handles the financial stuff quite well.
Money Never Sleeps doesn't get inside the sociopathology of the money culture. In a sense, it is a product, an expression, of that culture. Maybe that's why it's so disagreeably agreeable.
The story of Jake, Winnie and Gordon makes us wonder if there is any other bedtime story so lulling, so disarming, as moviedom's falsely wrought "happily ever after."
In a perverse but amusing way, Money Never Sleeps sometimes seems like film noir for CNBC junkies.
... it's Douglas who makes Stone's sequel worth a watch ...
