I found this preachy and incoherent, both in regard to its explanation for the recession and in various aspects of the story. But Michael Douglas is really good. Is he good enough on his own to make it worth the time and ticket price? Maybe not.
A.O. Scott at the NYT is much kinder but I worry that he may actually be friends with Oliver Stone or, more likely, just giving him bonus points on this one because of his earlier movies.
Who was my favorite student this term?
