Just finished on Netflix. Great film. I love films like this that are small and still very deep. Reminds me of Buried with Ryan Reynolds.

I found this film last night on TV when i was randomly flicking through channels. It's very similar to the movie Rogue Trader.



Synopsis:

Team Spirit also called L’outsider is based on the true story of Jerome Kerviel, who was a futures trader for the French investment bank Société Générale. The movie tracks the rise and fall of Kerviel who gambled big time on the DAX, FTSE and Eurostoxx futures contracts. The size of Kerviel trades were so large it took him days to scale in and out of trades. By the time his unauthorized trading was discovered losses exceeded more than $5 billion euros for his Firm. This all happened just as the 2008 financial crisis was unfolding.

Watched an interesting trading/markets movie last night. Not the run of the mill trading movie.Intelligent. Name is "Equity"

I just watched this movie on Netflix. It isn't Academy Award material but if you're interested in markets / Wall Street then it is definitely worth watching.

You can see that the Metascore is higher than the surprisingly low User rating:

The following movie was produced in 1973. When I look at today's world economies, financial markets and current political situations, which is in 2022, the movie even could be made today. Masks, food shortages, police and political behavior against the people, wars and so on and on.

Soylent Green

Soylent Green is a 1973 American ecological dystopian thriller film directed by Richard Fleischer, and starring Charlton Heston, Leigh Taylor-Young and Edward G. Robinson in his final film role. Loosely based on the 1966 science fiction novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison, the film combines police procedural and science fiction genres, the investigation into the murder of a wealthy businessman and a dystopian future of dying oceans and year-round humidity, due to the greenhouse effect, resulting in pollution, poverty, overpopulation, euthanasia and depleted resources.[2] In 1973, it won the Nebula Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and the Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film.



By 2022, the cumulative effects of overpopulation, pollution and an apparent climate catastrophe have caused severe worldwide shortages of food, water and housing. There are 40 million people in New York City alone, where only the city's elite can afford spacious apartments, clean water and natural food. The homes of the elite are fortified, with private security, bodyguards for their tenants, and usually include concubines (who are referred to as "furniture" and serve the tenants as slaves). The poor live in squalor, haul water from communal spigots, and eat highly processed wafers, "Soylent Red", "Soylent Yellow", and the latest product the far more flavorful and nutritious, squares of "Soylent Green".

Within the city live NYPD detective Robert Thorn and his aged friend Sol Roth, a highly intelligent former college professor and police analyst (referred to as a "Book"). Thorn is tasked with investigating the murder of the wealthy and influential William R. Simonson, a board member of the Soylent Corporation, which he suspects was an assassination. With the help of Simonson's concubine Shirl, his investigation leads to a priest that Simonson had visited shortly before his death. Because of the sanctity of the confessional, the nearly overcome priest is only able to hint at the contents of the confession before he himself later is murdered. By order of the governor, Thorn's immediate superiors tell him to end the investigation. Because of his concern for losing his job to higher superiors if he quits the case, and the fact that he is being followed by an unknown stalker, he continues. He is soon attacked while working during a riot by the same assassin who killed Simonson, but the killer is crushed by the hydraulic shovel of a police crowd control vehicle.

I watched this movie last night and really enjoyed it. It's not about trading but its about a guy that that found a flaw in the lotto and used math to put the odds in his favor. I think any algorithmic trader would really appreciate this story.



Synopsis:

Based on the true story about couple Jerry and Marge Selbee, who win the lottery and use the money to revive their small town.
