Oliver Stone's 'Wall Street' tells the story of a young stockbroker (Charlie Sheen) taken under the wing of Gordon Gekko, a sinister corporate raider played by Michael Douglas. The film is considered a 1980s classic, exploring the excessive, unscrupulous nature of yuppie culture, encapsulated in Gekko's memorable line: 'greed, for want of a better word, is good'.
