Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


In two nights, I watched the film Wall Street starring Michael Douglas.

This is a classic commercial war film. Gaige, a financial tycoon starring Douglas, has made great changes in the stock market. He does not hide his greed. His speech and behavior are full of aggressive and confident personality. It seems that everything is under control. Obviously, people with this character are either completely annoying or fascinating and adorable.

In the film, bud (Charlie Sheen), a stockbroker who has just graduated from New York University and needs to repay student loans, is still unable to make ends meet despite his ideal and hard work. He is struggling at the bottom of Wall Street – everyone can find his own shadow from him. By chance, he approached Geiger, a stock market tycoon, and changed his life. Bud began to use his father, classmates, colleagues and all possible opportunities to spy on information and provide information to geige for stock insider trading. So money, luxury houses and beautiful women, everything rolled in. In the process of acquiring Blue Star Airlines where bud’s father worked, greedy Geiger took advantage of bud and broke his original promise to dissolve and sell the airline, which clashed with bud, who still had conscience and justice. So bud fought back and saved Bluestar airlines, but he was eventually jailed for engaging in illegal stock insider trading.

There was a time, maybe even now, when I was infatuated with everything about Wall Street. The bookcase was full of books such as the great game, the record of hedge funds and the confession of a wall street addict. In our public mind, Wall Street is a place where elites graduated from Ivy League schools can work. These people have extremely high IQ, distinct personality and full of energy. They work at least 12 hours a day. Even the most junior people hold more than 60000 dollars, and the air they breathe is filled with the smell of money and wealth. In this obsessive mood, I became absorbed in all the books on business war, finance and stocks, and thought I had read all the business war novels published and popular on the Internet, but obviously it was not enough to just read the description of words, because there was also the film wall street. By the way, the mainland’s financial and commercial war novels are only in the enlightenment stage, mixed with good and bad. Ding Li is the best writer so far, and is expected to become Arthur Haley of China. People who have less work experience than rabbit tail and have not experienced a complete bull market and bear market, but can also make up novels such as fund managers and capital swordsmen, feel admiration, and finally understand the reasons for the depression of the book industry.

I think Napoleon’s words may be an answer to the question of why he is infatuated with Wall Street. Napoleon said that men’s career exists only in two places: on horseback and on women’s belly. In the era of peace, there is no war, so we can’t ride on horseback to attack the enemy bravely, but we can find such a feeling in the stock market and financial market. Through computers, networks and terminals, you can become a general and commander in a battlefield where you can’t see the smoke of gunpowder. You can dispatch all currencies and thousands of troops to fight. You can be powerful. When the dust is settled, will you be a winner or a loser? Everything will be known naturally. This is a zero sum game. If someone makes a lot of money, someone must lose their wealth. The so-called one will be successful forever. It may be more appropriate to use it in the financial market. For men in this industry, the K-line chart is more beautiful and interesting than women’s s S-shaped figure. Douglas’s line in the film is that the sense of achievement of making money is “better than sex”.

In the film wall street, the conflict between greed, money and human nature always exists, but in fact, this conflict also permeates every one of our lives. You may work hard like a dog, full of ambitions and ideals, but you just struggle on the edge of survival, have no fixed place, rush for three meals a day, and see no hope and dream. There are people around you who are not as good as you, but they can live in high positions, fragrant cars and luxury houses and enjoy life. At this time, will you shake your life beliefs and survival principles? As Geiger taught bud in the film, “work hard? I bet you stay up late to analyze the bad stocks you want me to buy, right? What benefits do you get? My father sells electronic parts and works hard every day, but he died of a heart attack at the age of 49 and owed a lot of taxes.” Just last night, I revisited the legend of Leiluo starring Andy Lau on cable TV. When Leiluo first made his debut, he also wanted to be an honest and promising good policeman, but in the face of cruel reality, he went to the same road as others, and was darker and more greedy than others.

About greed. Sometimes the word is not derogatory. Many film critics say that Wall Street is a film defending human greed, but in my opinion, this is a matter of different opinions. The director just created a greedy tycoon with great personality and charm. The final outcome is obviously to face legal sanctions. People are greedy. The process of everyone’s struggle is a history of satisfying personal greed. Geiger’s wonderful speech at the shareholders’ meeting may be what film critics say to defend greed. “Greed is good, greed is right, and greed is useful. Greed can clarify everything and go straight to the essence of evolution. Greed is the place of all forms. Be greedy for life, love and knowledge… Greed stimulates the upward motivation of mankind. Remember my words, greed can not only save TEDA paper (company) , it can better save the United States with dysfunctional mechanism. ” Many of the lines in the film are expressed by Geiger, who is played by Douglas, in a self-confident language. His gestures are very charming. Douglas’s acting skills are fully displayed. I think this is the reason why he won the Oscar for 87.

About success. I think most Chinese people now measure success by a person’s wealth, status and power, which is the same as Geiger in the film and bud. Of course, he woke up in the end. Bud and his father had a fierce confrontation over this. Bud thought that his father did not support his acquisition of Bluestar airlines, was jealous of the fact that his son was more successful than him, and lacked the courage to give it a go. And bud’s father said, “the man you see never measures success by the thickness of his wallet.”. In Hollywood movies, you often unconsciously accept the main melody they instill, the Christian spirit, that is, loyalty to your wife and family, integrity, ordinary and hard work, support a shade for the family with men’s bodies, and let your wives and children live happily. This is the success and greatness in their eyes. Similar similarities can be found in all American films and resonate with the audience. In contrast, Chinese films can only be speechless. The role of Bader’s father in the film is impressive, with few words. It is more performed through eyes and body movements, which interprets an ordinary, honest and deeply fatherly role. His actor Martin Sheehan is actually the actor who plays bud, Charlie Sheehan’s father.

In fact, I have always been skeptical of the view that “human nature is good”. Man is also an animal. We are no more noble and pure than other animals on this planet. Even on the contrary, human beings have learned to hide their inferiority as animals in the cloak of civilization, which is more hypocritical and cunning. I’m tired of some film reviews. They often associate people’s greed with capitalism. Are people in socialist countries more noble and noble? This has nothing to do with the political system, just human nature. Eastern society seems to generally believe that “human nature is inherently good”, so for thousands of years, it has been centered on the rule of man and built the prosperity and fairness of the country and society on the emergence of “saints, honest officials and Ming monarchs”. Western society believes that “human nature is evil”, and people are always flawed and prone to mistakes, so it has designed a set of supervision, law, decentralization, checks and balances. In fact, in the final analysis, human nature in the world is interlinked, which has nothing to do with what social system it belongs to.

At the end of the film, it is still the model of Hollywood’s main melody. Justice and conscience defeated greed and desire. Bud Daigong recorded the conversation with Geiger and handed it to the regulatory authority. In fact, it’s hard for me to believe that Geiger can be convicted only with a short recording, because the director foreshadowed it before: at a family party, the lawyer asked bud to sign a document, authorized bud to handle Geiger’s account and handle every transaction with full power. The sale of shares has nothing to do with Geiger in law. Compared with Geiger, bud is the difference between sheep and jackals, and in Geiger’s words, “sheep are to be slaughtered”.

The lines in the film. Douglas plays Geiger, who often teaches bud in the film. He is impressed by his self-confidence, greed, naked and straightforward language.

“People outside buy stocks by guessing. I won’t shoot birds at random. I only do what I’m most sure of.”

“You (bud) are not as smart as I thought. Have you ever wondered why fund managers can’t beat the stamp 500 stock index because they are sheep and sheep are going to be slaughtered.”

“Most Harvard Business school graduates are worse than shit. (stock trading) this industry needs poor smart people, hungry and cold-blooded, lose and win, but you have to fight all the time. If you need friends, keep a dog. The outside world is a close battle.”

“Wake up, friend. If you’re not an insider, you’re out.”

“I don’t mean an old-fashioned person with an annual salary of 400000 and living on Wall Street. It’s OK to sit in first class and live comfortably. I’m talking about a lot of cash. I have enough money to buy my own plane. I don’t waste time. I’m talking about 50 million or 100 million. If you can’t be a decent player, you can only be a nobody.”

“It seems that the law of American enterprises has become that the fittest survive. And my view is that you either do it right or be eliminated.”

“(making money) it’s not enough. It’s a zero sum game. Either you lose or you win. Money itself doesn’t lose or win, it just changes hands, just like a trick“

“I don’t create, but I can have. I make the rules, my friend!”

The confrontation between human greedy desire and morality and law has never stopped. Greed is a devil and a beast of prey, which will devour our souls and tear up our hearts and bodies. But we must also maintain the necessary greed for knowledge and life, which is also the driving force of our struggle. As Engels said, human greed, desire and insatiability are the levers to promote the progress of human history. What kind of balance and scale can be maintained between the two? Maybe only everyone can answer it.

Perhaps we can only console ourselves with Kant’s words: there are only two things in this world that can deeply shock our hearts, one is the brilliant starry sky above our heads, and the other is the noble moral law in our hearts.
