Goofs

The end climax of Richards' death by the Lion mauling him is ruled an accident. However, considering the controversy of Richards character no suspicion is cast over his death despite this. In fact, Amanda touched the button that opened the enclosure door with her bare hand. Surly that would've not gone unnoticed by forensics & authorities at the scene given they would've questioned why the enclosure door was open in the first place. See more »

How Much Did People Get Paid To Make This Film?
1 March 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Steve Coogan is a magnate in the rag trade. Over the last 45 years he has amassed a personal fortune somewhere in the billions of Pounds. His skill set consists of negotiation by walking out - a useful talent - and connections into banking. This allows him to take over corporations using bank money, sell off their assets, write a huge dividend check, then watch as the company goes into bankruptcy. He also has no taste and a limited vulgarity, even when it comes to profanity.

It's a scattergun satire of the sort that wealthy people make about those even more wealthy than they. Most of it takes place in the run-up to Coogan's 60th birthday party, scheduled as a Roman banquet set in a Circus Maximus sort of construction in Greece. There's a bit where they're hiring musical acts, and some discussion of the willingness of rich rockers to work for a couple of million for a one-hour gig. Another major portion has Coogan appearing before a select committee of Parliament. On being asked why he pays so little in taxes, he says no one pays taxes willingly and if they want, they can go after Bono, who lives in Holland while complaining about other people.

GREED makes its points best towards the end, with written text describing the situation. At that point, of course, it ceases to be a satire and becomes a polemic of anger against the rich. Of course they deserve contempt for their behavior, but as long as we take their money to do what they wish, should we not also reserve some of it for ourselves?
