Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

A few nights ago my wife and I watched "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" by Oliver Stone.  I'm still not sure what to make of this film but I find myself thinking about it often.  Stone does a praiseworthy job of exposing the empty promises of money.  Idolatry always enslaves leaving us empty and broken.  We all know this in theory yet deep down if we are honest we think that having more money will make us happier.  A good companion to this move is Tim Keller's excellent book "Counterfiet Gods".  Maybe Oliver Stone read it.  Maybe you should read it.  This movie is well acted, well filmed, well written, and clean.  Warning! If you barely passed your finance classes in college (like me) you may get confused with the Wall Street Jargon...David Farley
