12. Pi (1998)
A movie made by the hands of Darren Aronofsky, is bound to create a lot of restlessness. And on top of it the movie happens to be laden with the magic of numbers. The movie gets you high on the puffs of money. The movie revolves around Max Cohen, who disguises his narration and makes his say. He is a junkie, a stock junkie. The movie brings together the very famous dominance of obsession and paranoia. If you are a fan with the Aronofsky style of scripting and direction, this is a bit of a let down. But what he loses in his madness, he makes up for it with the revelling theories of religion chasing numbers. A conspiracy theory of sorts but still very interesting. Watch the scene where Max is going through the numbers of stock investments under his portfolio and keeps talking to himself. Till the camera captures the entire scene, the audience is made to believe there are people listening to Max in that room until the room reveals itself with just Max and his possessed eyes.

11. American Psycho (2000)
The movie is not about the numbers or the turbulence of financial commodities. Yet it makes an impression for the very eccentric Christian Bale as the investment banker Patrick Bateman. The reason movie stands in this spot is for its scenes unveiling the mundanities of Patrick’s routine. It makes a symphony out of his routine, adding texture and edge to the character. Patrick is a Psycho in every sense but even before he makes that clear, the very calmness of his life makes for uneasiness in the audience’s minds. In his tuxedo and over coat, he creates a persona of an investment banker bundled with his cufflinks. The movie is brutal and dark, yet in the hinges of deaths the audience gets to see the dealing of the finance world and the mere backdrop of the financial slaughter hacks are enough to make the audience drool over the Financial World.
