Quotes

Ron Levin: I had been working at Rothschild for a year. When suddenly I found myself thrown in front of a discipline committee and was forced to defend myself. And... I had nothing. 21 stories and none of them good. So I came clean.
Joe Hunt: They take your license?
Ron Levin: No, I mean they could have, they should have, but no. Because what I was doing wasn't illegal... yet. I was ahead of the law. I mean, it was unethical and corrupt. Immoral if you believe in that sort of thing. But it wasn't illegal, so they had nothing....

Failed To Hold My Attention
19 July 2018 | by ManchesterMatthewSee all my reviews

Considering this film's runtime is around 100 minutes it felt more like 4 hours.

I struggled to find any of the characters engaging or likeable, and so didn't feel invested in the story.

After about an hour (or what felt like three), my attention had waivered to the point I was on my phone looking up the real-life story behind the film.

Maybe it's just not my type of movie, so give it a go yourself by all means. For me, though, this was instantly forgettable.
