Enter a world where pandemonium reigns and reckless ambition rules: the trading floors in the financial canyons of downtown Chicago. Here, men use strange hand signals to buy and sell everything from pork belly to soybeans while wearing the weight of our complex economy on their shoulders - along with their neon jackets. It's a physical, bruising place, one where a slight gain creates heroes, rich beyond what their high school educations should ever afford. But the wrong move on the wrong day can ruin lives. At a time when millions have lost fortunes in the fickle stock market and fear abounds about the faltering financial system, FLOORED is a gripping, honest look behind the curtain of the trading floor that few have ever seen. Written by James Allen Smith

"horror documentary hybrid"
31 May 2010 | by steveprozSee all my reviews

Kick ass, a must see!! Floored is relevant for everyone not just those in the world of finance. Fantastic collection of topic and characters centered around a fast pace and self destructing culture. Floored is an interesting character piece with an antagonist that is lurking at every job in every position in the world. Raw, insightful and compelling dialogue that brings you into the closed world of futures trading in Chicago. I was pulled into the human stories and I was having a personal battle with the cause of the extinction/extermination taking place. The director does a great job of introducing the possible "horrors" or reasons, but in the end the audience must make up their own mind. A true documentary and an enjoyable roller coaster ride of emotions.
