Wall Street (1987)
How will the decisions Bud Fox made affect the rest of his life?
Charlie Sheen plays Bud Fox a very young stock broker wanting to make it big time in the Wall Street world. His persistence finally pays off and he meets a ruthless businessman, Mr. Gordon Gekko, played by Michael Douglas. Bud Fox, a man of low morals has a mischievous side. Bud Fox's father, Martin Sheen, brings to light early in the film that Bud has a mischievous inner self wanting to achieve. Mr. Gordon Gekko has the qualities that Bud Fox has always imagined as a father-figure. Throughout his entire life, Bud Fox, has always wanted to possess the best money can buy whether that be material items, power or women. Bud meets a beautiful woman named Darien, played by Daryl Hannah and believes she possesses all he has been looking for in a woman ie. social status, beauty, and seeks to have the best money can buy. How far is Bud willing to go to achieve this at his young age in life? Bud reaches his limit when he discovers that his self absorption could destroy not only his father's livelihood but the livelihood of many people he knew from his younger days of working with them at the airline. Bud could lose the riches and the woman he loves if he decides to go against ruthless businessman, Mr. Gordon Gekko. Is he willing to forgo money, power and the woman he loves? Wall Street shares similarities with another movie "Other People's Money" which is about a ruthless corporate raider who buys companies and tears them apart for personal profit. Unlike "Wall Street" the main character Lawrence "Larry the Liquidator" Garfield, played by Danny DeVito does not have a morally redeeming moment like Bud Fox. Michael Douglas gives a superb performance at the peak of his acting career. Charlie Sheen is in the first phase of his career in this morally challenging role as Bud Fox. The ambient sounds used in the Wall Street world give the feeling of the hustle and bustle that goes on in the world of stock trading. The phones ringing in the background and all of the talking heard in the background reinforce the how busy it is in the world of stock brokering. A montage occurs during a height in the action when Bud Fox and Gordon Gekko are wrestling for ownership of Blue Star Airlines. How will the decisions Bud Fox made affect the rest of his life?
