A great upbeat, light-hearted commentary from Oliver Stone. A fun and inspiring listen.

Stone points out that Hal Holbrook’s character was based largely on his father who also worked on Wall Street and his life was the impetus for Stone making this film. The director talks about the casting of Gordon Gekko and how he originally approached Richard Gere and Warren Beatty before Michael Douglas and why he ultimately picked him. Stone talks about Douglas’ early struggles with the huge amount of dialogue he had to deliver and how he dealt with it. The filmmaker is candid with his shortcomings and those of others (i.e. Daryl Hannah, Charlie Sheen, etc.). As always, Stone delivers the goods, offering all kinds of fascinating insights into the making of the film.
