Goofs

In the opening shot, you see a tape being placed into a vintage TEAC cassette deck which is "connected" to a PIONEER TX-608 which is "connected" to a speaker. This set up would never work as the TX-608 is a tuner only component. You would need either a receiver or a preamp/amplifier to actually connect the deck and the speaker to play and hear the cassette. See more »

Quotes

Sydney Evans: How can you not see how alone I am?
Joe Hunt: I do! It's this town! It's this town. They build you up to tear you down. You're never good enough. You know how hard it is to keep my stories straight?
Sydney Evans: What?
Joe Hunt: The BBC is full of cash. The BBC's flushed out. Ron Levin's gone to New York. Ron Levin's gone for good!
Sydney Evans: What are you talking about? What does that even mean, "gone for good" ? Where's Ron Levin?... You know what? I don't wanna know.

Good movie but very reminiscent of other films
17 July 2018 | by tkaine3See all my reviews

This movie doesn't take long to kick into gear and has a pretty fast pace. The acting is good and the music is retro pop giving you that late 80's early 90's fun disco vibe. But the movie is based on a true story and that adds to the storylines authenticity but young guys starting a investment firm and getting in over their heads is a story too commonly told. This story does however go further on the tragedy scale then other movies about broker's or investors but when you watch these films that cover this topic it's always like watching a slow train wreck and this feature is no different. I do think this movie has some entertainment value but just a little.

I give this film a fair rating which means it's something worth watching but only when you get some free time don't go cancelling any appointments this movie can wait.
