Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, the director of the film was quoted saying in an interview:
"It's a love story, that's for sure. Imagine a woman who is just so elegant and sophisticated and educated and has lived in that world and now, through a whole set of circumstances, suddenly falls in love with a guy who is not any of those things, and it just somehow confuses her whole world because that was not meant to happen. She had it all worked out, she had this grand master plan, and neither he nor she had thought it possible that they would fall in love with each other. I have to keep the real details a secret otherwise you won't have any fun seeing it."

Actors Turning Into Their Characters

Wall Street:Money Never Sleeps

Oliver Stone's 1987 film "Wall Street" had taken it's viewers into an exotic world. 23 years later, Oliver Stone returns with it's sequel. Apparently this is the first ever sequel Stone has directed. First movie was a huge hit as came at time when financial news was just a news for everybody and suddenly there was this movie on banking that looked like thriller. This time there's nothing exotic about it anymore. Its based on the nightly news on unemployment corporate downsizing.

But, it is that rare sequel that took its time-23 years and not only it advances its story but also has something new to say. Stone and his sawy writers Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff, have crafted a tale that takes advantage of viewers' newfound knowledge and cynicism. Stone has cast his movie well with Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin and Carey Mulligan to attract younger viewers, and Michael Douglas' return as Gekko can't help being a major lure.

The story settles quickly on young proprietary trader Jake Moore (LaBeouf), who just happens to be in love with Winnie Gekko (Mulligan), Gordon's estranged daughter. Despite Gekko's attempts to warn Wall Street of the economic downturn and stock market crash no one takes him seriously because of his early crimes. Then Gekko tries to rebuild his relationship with his daughter who always accused him for her brother's suicide. In the mean while, global economy is on the verge of disaster, Jake, a young Wall Street trader joins hands with Gekko on a two tier mission.

Can you win two Oscars playing the same role? An actor rarely gets the opportunity to revive a breakthrough role in a way that allows him to rethink the character and to reflect on where fatal flaws once lay. Douglas does this brilliantly. LaBeouf is top notch. He nicely balances his character's idealism and shrewdness. Mulligan and Brolin deliver strong supporting roles with attention-grabbing characters.

Stone has tried a different way of direction this time. His camera work can be either praised in a great manner or people might be turned off. Either ways, no one can ignore the class he has put in the movie. As stated earlier, camera work is glittering and glossy. Background score is scintillating.

To conclude, I would just say that go for it to experience Gordon Gekko after 23 years and of course the class of Stone in a movie on finance, thrill and banking and the brilliant camera-work.

Military jacket

Good fashion trends for winter 2010

The Military Jacket- The Military jacket seems to be constantly in and out of fashion. I bought one about 4 years ago, and they stayed 'in' for about a year- a year and a half, went off the radar for a couple of years, and now they're back again. Of course that didn't stop me from wearing my military jacket, don't ever let what's 'in' and what's not, stop you from wearing what you like. It doesn't matter if you wear trend's that aren't in fashion anymore, because latest fashion trends should be intended to give you new ideas, and add something new to your wardrobe when you feel that you need to update a bit.

The military jacket is quite versatile when it comes to styles, and the jacket itself comes in a number of styles. The military jacket can be worn with a number of combinations to fit a variety of styles. Those styles are: Casual, punk, hippie, sophisticated, and can easily be dressed up or down.

The usual colors of the military jacket are, black and khaki. Other less common colors that the military jacket comes in are navy blue and red. The jacket can either be neat and tailored, or rough, and even frayed. What makes the military jacket is the dome buttons, either directly down the middle of the jacket, or to the side of the front. 

In my opinion, a style of the military jacket can be found to suit almost anyone, and it's definitely something to hold onto for years.
