Gold

Matthew McConaughey is a fat wolf of Wall Street type figure, who fancies getting richer than he already is by looking for gold in Indonesia. He takes Edgar Ramirez with him, and they find some gold or maybe it’s not there, or maybe it really is, or maybe it isn’t. 222 more words

Quite a bit works in Private Benjamin, which makes all the creaky parts stick out more. Even though the film runs 109 minutes, a lot seems cut out. 702 more words

Gold Movie Review

Stephen Gaghan’s Gold tells another fairly recent “inspired by true events” tale of excess and greed. Instead of nefarious Wall Street types (though they’re here), our story takes place in the gold mining industry. 378 more words
