      I’ve watched all except Inside Job (and Wolf) – and enjoyed all of them. I’m not so much into documentaries so I’m not sure if I’ll watch Inside Job, but tempted to go watch Wolf before it goes off-screen. Let me know how you find it if/when you watch it!

      Wolf of Wall Street – Based on a True story, Brilliant movie and acting(Expected from a Leonardo movie). I could see people thumping their chests after the movie 😛

      Wall Street (1987) – Excellent Movie, Great Acting, Loved it.

      Inside Job – Really informational. Its a great documentary, one which I’ve recommended many friends to watch, even those that are remotely interested in Finance.

      Didn’t enjoy Margin Call. I guess it pales in comparison to other movies. Haven’t watched American Psycho.

      @AJfinance american psycho is pretty disturbing, but brilliant in the sense that the scenes are so memorable. In a good(ish) way.

      Agree, Inside Job is a great doco, well worth seeing. Another brilliant doco is “The smartest guys in the room”, all about Enron and it’s downfall.

      Too Big to Fail’ is another brilliant TV Movie on the 2008 crisis focusing on Lehman collapse, AIG Bailout and the TARP.

      There are few I could add not necessarily related to Wall Street but to finance. Rouge Trader, Trading Places, Other People’s Money and Limitless. If this doesn’t interest you then Google it, there are quite a few.

      Has anyone watched Wall Street Warriors?
