5 Most Memorable Movies About Greed
Wall Street (1987): Well, of course, where else would we start? Oliver Stone's classic epitomized the conspicuous-consumption mentality of the 1980s and provided Michael Douglas with one of his best-known characters and best-known lines. (People always get it wrong, though. Corporate raider Gordon Gekko never actually says "Greed is good" verbatim.) It also earned Douglas a best-actor Oscar, but truly, the slicked-back 'do alone could have sealed the award for him. And it's still relevant: The sequel, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," is scheduled to hit theaters next month, starring Shia LaBeouf and featuring Douglas once more as Gekko, albeit with far less hair product.
Fargo (1996):: One of the absolute best from Joel and Ethan Coen, it won two Academy Awards: for the brothers' original screenplay and for best-actress Frances McDormand as the plucky, persistent and extremely pregnant small-town sheriff Marge Gunderson. But the greed part comes from an inept scheme by car salesman Jerry Lundegaard, played by the tremendous William H. Macy, who arranges to have his wife kidnapped to collect the ransom. This does not go as planned. Darkly funny and starkly photographed by the great cinematographer Roger Deakins, "Fargo" is a film you can watch repeatedly and see something new each time. You betcha.
