Greed

Greed: the movie has now been dedicated to Caroline Flack

Condemning of asset-stripping billionaires, exploitation of textile workers and fashion consumers, celebrity culture and reality TV, off-shore tax havens and clones to refugees.
Yet despite a declared intention to make the Philip Green style lead human, I just couldn’t see past the cruelty with staff and see past the cheating of people. And I only laughed at the scenes involving the lion.
Political, this should have been my kind of movie and I imagine it will be funny watching it second time around. See it as an education (especially in a ending montage) but not necessarily an entertainment.
Wiki. Guardian.
And a bit of poignancy walking home through Hockley (with its second-hand clothing charity shops) and the Lace Market (rich with its former textiles heritage).
