Outline of the film and it's continuing relevance.
4 May 2002 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

This movie recounts a portion of one of the largest frauds in insurance and stock market history, the US$200 million Equity Funding Corporation of America(Los Angeles) fraud. This film deals with the creation, maintenance and coinsurance of bogus insurance policies by means of the computer. The methods used in the deception, the reasons for continuing and the attitude of those involved are superbly portrayed by the cast. A movie which is as relevant today as when it was made and which provides entertainment and understanding of how these things happen.....perhaps because this film should have been shown more often, which it no doubt would have been were it available in VHS/DVD.
