More Films about Finance

It was hard to decide where to cut off the list, and 20 is a rather arbitrary number. If your taste for finance-themed films isn’t sated by my list, here are some others you might enjoy.


Rollover (1981; 116 minutes; currency crisis); 

Quicksilver (1986; drama; 99 minutes; derivatives trading); 

The Bank (2001; 104 minutes; foreclosure);

A Good Year (2006; 118 minutes; private wealth); 

The Last Day of Lehman Brothers(2009; 60 minutes; bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers); 

Arbitrage (2012; 107 minutes; accounting fraud).


Working Girl(1988; 115 minutes; mergers and acquisitions).


Trader (1987; 56 minutes; futures trading);

Super Rich: The Greed Game (2008; 60 minutes; wealth accumulation); 

The Love of Money (2009; 90 minutes; analysis of financial crisis);

The Warning,” on PBS’s Frontline (2009; 56 minutes; securities regulation);
