Reversal of Fortune

“What makes it such a mesmerizing, wickedly witty entertainment is the revealing portrait it paints of an era in which everyone is presumed guilty where greed is concerned..”

  • Peter Travers of Rolling Stone reviews the 1990 film Reversal of Fortune. Its protagonist, Claus von Bulow, died on 25 May 2019.

 

“If you’re the forced seller of an illiquid asset, it’s worse than being trapped in a crowded theatre that’s on fire. It’s like being trapped in a crowded theatre that’s on fire and the only means of escape is to try and get someone to swap places with you.”

  • Anon., during the 2008 Global Financial Crisis.
