Wall Street was awesome, if only for the fashion.

American Psycho, kiiiiind of counts and is a great movie.
Haven't seen Boiler Room, but only because none of the usual suspect download sites have it... :D

Wall St. Warriors is online, but you have to be american to watch all the episodes. Should be on piratebay.org on torrent; otherwise it'll be quite hard to find another one -

New series coming out soon.

And make sure you check out the original version with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway, and some great music (and even the poor singing of Noel Harrison has its own charm).

The Piers Brosnan remake isn't bad though.

The Sopranos made an excursion into the boiler room industry with a pump-and-dump operation if I remember right.

That's right; I really enjoyed those episodes (well, I enjoyed every episode...).
Quite funny to see Christopher ("I work on Wall Street....well, not exactly Wall Street...") going into "the office" each day in his "trader's suit", although perhaps not quite as funny as his Hollywood screenwriter fantasies.


BTW, sorry I keep mentioning him, but Michael Covel has a film coming out:

BROKE: The New American Dream

I believe it should be well-worth watching.
