finance movie recommendations

What movies would you guys recommend in the 'finance' genre- like the "Thomas Crown Affair" and "Other People's Money," etc..

Are you asking for heist movies, or for movies like WALL STREET or THE BANK?

Oh, okay. Then WALL STREET.

And THE BANK (though I hated it, to be honest with you). Perhaps BOILER ROOM?

Then there're films like MY MAN GODFREY and SABRINA -- both of which deal in some ways with high finance, though both are romantic comedies...

I can't think of many movies that are really about finance, but I can think of a bunch that have characters who are engaged in high finance.

"Barbarians At The Gate" - great HBO movie about corporate greed and takeovers.

Definitely ! "Rogue Trader"

Best movie of this sub-genre (? if you would call it that)

I wouldn't call the following "Finance" movies but if you are looking into something from a sales / financial perspective, I would reccomend:

"Boiler Room"
"Glengarry Glen Ross"

You may want to check out "Dealers" as well. It's not on DVD though.

Would the Godfather Part III count? I know it belongs in the Gangster genre, but it does have the element of Michael Corleone trying to take over that European corporation.
