CANNES (May 14) -- If the idea of watching men in suits squander our money and flush us down the financial toilet again sounds repugnant, then you might be pleasantly surprised by the new film "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps." Director Oliver Stone's recession-fueled sequel premiered Friday at the Cannes Film Festival, applying Hollywood gloss to a crisis that is all too real for most of us.

Gussied up with fancy suits, lustful looks at skyscrapers and a tale of lost fathers, "Wall Street" No. 2 manages to be easily digestible between the snack of your choice and the filmmaker's message: "I'm confused, as are many people in the room, as to whether capitalism can work," Stone said Friday at the press conference.
