Wall Street for Main Street
18 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chasing the Green is "Wall Street" for "Main Street". It is a very well acted, told and directed story of 2 brothers who start with high school educations and a good dose of greed and ambition and succeed in building a very successful business enterprise only to collide with the might and power of a petty government bureaucrat. In light of our current economic situation it is a great primer on the the excesses of the individual and the government and the impact of that conflict on the players and by-standers . Good acting and good direction make for an entertaining movie experience. This is Russ Emanuel's second feature, after P.J., and showcases his growth as a director.
