This film is based upon a novel by Don DeLillo and set in New York of the near future. Eric Packer is a 28 year-old billionaire financial genius in the field of currency speculation and the uncontested king of Wall Street. He has taken an enormous gamble betting against the yuan exchange rate. As he travels across town in his limo, he watches his fortune go down the drain.
This is a waste of every actor involved in this yak attack movie. It’s talking and taking about the meaning of life, ideas and imaginations about capitalism and inconsequential trivia for 109 minutes. 2* (I didn’t like this movie)
109 min, Drama directed by David Cronenberg with Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche.
Note: Blockbuster 2*, imdb 5.1 out of 10, 64% critic 32% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
