This is such an ironic theme since I feel like I’m not good at financial stuff and adulting in general. I actually went into the bookstore on Tuesday, and walked out with a tiny mug that said “I can’t adult today”. I say tiny because my coffee mug is 0,8 litres (not joking guys, I like my mugs HUGE), and this one is like 0,33 max. Still going to use it though, mostly as a prop but like I said, I’m not good at this adult/financial thing.
Well, the perfect moment to mention the outrageously talked about and brilliantly delivered The Wolf of Wall Street, which, as its name refers, is a movie about Wall Street. And that is where all the money is! I myself had lots of fun watching it but have come to a realisation that it doesn’t have lasting appeal – at the moment, I’m meh about the movie. Sure, I still think that epic crawl to the car is indeed epic, and the movie does have a certain flare, but I’m not yearning to see it again.
Alright, this one’s a bit of a gamble because it doesn’t really scream financial world when you first think about it, does it? But what it does is talk a lot about guns and selling those guns – which in itself is related to money and well, financial world it is. Lord of War was very relevant when it came out and it still is and I doubt the business of selling guns has become less connected to the financial world. Sure, it might not be the legal financial world but I bet there is a lot of money going around illegally. Plus, this is one of Nicolas Cage’s finer performances before things started to go south.
Money makes the world go around, and apparently, it also makes sports happen but we mostly hear the big numbers, not the small ones. In Moneyball, a movie based on real life, a manager to a baseball team finances his team with a help of a computer analysis. With a great performance by Brad Pitt and an effortlessly brilliant one by Jonah Hill, Moneyball is a sophisticated take on the world of sports-money.
