Quotes

Linda Gault: How about your day? What happened in the market?
Geoffrey Gault: Very strange. Four million share day. Heavy selling and most of the stuff pretty well absorbed. Just for no reason. I can't find any explanation for it. Everything looks perfectly serene. Unless some of the big chaps are getting ready to unload.
Linda Gault: Why don't you stop talking about business and look at me. That's better. Pay some attention to your wife. Other men find me - quite desirable, you know.

The Tip
19 September 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Only an 8 because of its length, probably 9 for short films. OK, short film, short comments.

I uttered several "wow's" in reaction to the dialog. If ever a film were straight, this one is. The viewer doesn't have to sit on the edge of his seat waiting for what the character's ought to say -- they say it.

"The Crash" could be favorably compared to the best of Maupassant's writing. The story is succinct and populated with unpretentious characters who make this film into what could be called concentrated story.

Chatterton is flawless and George Brent is so deliberately unassuming we end up liking him even as we condemn his lust for money. In fact, there are no bad guys at all. Actually no good ones, either. Nothing flat here.

Finally, in line with Maupassant's style, see if you don't think another title would be more appropriate -- "The Tip."
