Great movie. It was totally worth of all the Academy awards it won that year. Loved Christian bale’s enactment of Michael Burry!

Do you follow Michael Burry’s views or analysis of markets now too?

A few stayed after watching the movie

  • The scene at the club where Gekko tells Bud

“Ever wonder why fund managers can’t beat the S&P 500? 'Cause they’re sheep, and sheep get slaughtered. I been in the business since '69. Most of these Harvard MBA types, they don’t add up to dog shit. Gimme guys who are poor, smart and hungry. And no feelings. You win a few, you lose a few, but you keep on fighting”

  • The scene at the bluestar floor where Bud gets tutored by his father

“Money’s only something you need in case you don’t die tomorrow”

  • The scene at the office were Lou tells Bud

“The main thing about money, Bud, is that it makes you do things you don’t want to do”

  • The scene at Teldar paper meeting where Gekko says

“The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind”


I havent watched this :thinking: Is it available on any particular OTT platform?

Spoken like a true Wall Street Fan :smiley:

Just wondering, should we organise an online movie screening for only Dhan community members? :thinking:

We can decide on the film to be aired by polls.


Ys a big fan.

The Big Short talked about everyone except AIG Insurance group. They were the prime culprit for 2008 crash.

It’s based on decades of actual events in Japan, focusing on power of the Central Bank and Government. A must watch for macro economics enthusiast.

As mentioned by @aritra , available on youtube.


Billions, not a movie - but one of good ones in series. And of course, Scam 1992

Among rest, Wall Street, the original movie.


I will watch this today.
Everyone, feel free to use this thread to discuss movies, series on stock markets!

I recently watched Bazaar and I liked it! Saif Ali Khan’s character is a shrewd trader and does justice to the film.

Have any of you watched it as well?


I did watch it. But didn’t like it much :grimacing: May be because I have watched some iconic movies around the stock market and relative to them this one didn’t appear to be in that class.
