Tony Montana: Me, I want what’s coming to me.
Manny Ribera: Oh, well what’s coming to you?
Tony Montana: The world, chico, and everything in it.
The lead story here, undeniably, is that Oliver Stone is up to his old tricks.
“Savages” is old school Stone. It’s a story with a cast of crazy and colorful characters, caught up in violent situations, soaked in drugs and sex, performed by a great cast who all seem to be relishing their deliciously cheesy roles, and wrapped up in Stone’s unmistakable, inimitable directorial stylings.
I don’t know if I can call it good, but it sure as Hell is fun.
Sometimes, the greatest sin a movie can commit is having greatness in its grasp and letting it slip away before your eyes.
You watch and you’re realizing… they’re soooo close.
But they never get there.
Such is the case with Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”, which made its debut on HBO Saturday night.
