...an eye-opening behind-the-scenes glimpse at an almost alien landscape.

Like the rest of Stone's oeuvre, it's about as subtle as a sledgehammer. But his filmmaking style is like heavy metal: When he hits the right chords, nobody plays with as much power or brash energy.

Some of the 1980s-era details may seem a bit dated, and the movie's attitude toward women is slightly despicable, but the overall story arc, echoing the "Faust" tale, is timeless.

All the performances are excellent with the emotional highlights including the father/son emotional angst between Sheen and his real life father Martin Sheen.

a compelling drama that is exceedingly well acted (with the obvious exception of the wretched Daryl Hannah)

A big, glossy movie that satirises the whole yuppie ethos more than anything else.

Writer-director Oliver Stone, who shows an uncanny knack for anticipating public interest in the subjects he chooses, explores the much-publicized inside trading scandals of the mid-1980s.

Though it's set in urban New York, the jungle in this morality tale is similar to the one in Stone's former film, Platoon: In both, Charlie Sheen plays a youth torn between two father figures representing Good (Martin Sheen) and Evil (Michael Douglas)

If it's possible to have dialogue that's too stunning for the film's own good, that's the case with "Wall Street."

Wall Street is Stone's snarling condemnation of the Go-Go junk bond king buy 'em, break 'em, and sell off the parts '80s.
