I suppose "Wall Street" with Michael Douglas is at or near the top of the list. Although the "greed is good" go-go 1980's have become cliched, the plot of the movie and the characters are still interesting to me. What trader wouldn't want to do the deals that Gordon Gekko did? The big office overlooking Manhattan, the million dollar deals, the perks of being a big time trader, the house in the Hamptons....it was very romanticized. Although it did show the downfalls when you cross the line into illegal deals. Douglas also played a big bond trader in "A Perfect Murder". I couldn't help but fantasize after seeing the movie. He's in a similar office that he had in "Wall Street", with a row of Bloomberg terminals and computer monitors nearby. Plus you throw in his penthouse apartment, his wife (Gwenyth Paltrow) and his overall lifestyle and it makes being a "trader" a very appealing profession. Barbarians at the Gate didn't deal with trading per se, but the inside veiw of Wall Street it showed was interesting. "Boiler Room" had a good story, but it didn't romanticize trading that much. There was a darker undertone to it. What other Wall street "trading" related movies do you like?
