"Floored," the documentary on Trading Pit opens in Chicago this week

Chicago’s open-outcry nostalgists can now watch their slow- motion obituary on film. “Floored,” a documentary that premieres in the city tonight, captures the fading swagger of its exchange pits as electronic trading takes over.

I'm looking forward to it. I enjoyed "Wall Street Warriors".

Anyone know if there is going to be a nation wide release? I've been waiting to see this film for over a year.

I saw a preview showing in San Francisco last week. The director was there to answer questions after they showed the film.

I enjoyed the film. When it was over I found myself wanting to see more.

There are some very interesting characters in the movie. When I say characters I don't mean actors. The traders in the movie are real and some are successful and some are not. I think there were a number of floor traders at the movie and its safe to say that they are not fans of electronic trading. Some think the computer is the most evil thing ever invented.

If you have an opportunity to see it I recommend it.

By the way, even though its not real, I'm looking forward to the Wall Street sequel with Michael Douglas aka Gordon Gekko. I think that's his name.

I don't believe it will be released the theaters, but I could be wrong. The director was saying that they were targeting April for DVD and other types of releases.

Thanks for the heads up, sounds like a great movie I'll have to check it out. Any idea when/where it's running in Chi?

FLOORED the movie

Floored

Enjoy....

Lio

A world that's more riot than profession, the trading floors of Chicago are a place where gambling your family's mortgage is all in a day's work. Floored offers a unique window to this lesser-known world of finance. These men may not have degrees, but they've got guts, and penchant for excess that solicits simultaneous feelings of revulsion and admiration. But like many aspects of our economy, technology is changing the way these traders do business, and these eccentric pit denizens aren't the type to take kindly to new tricks. Check http://www.babelgum.com/floored for more info

Thx AkLio. I'm trying to find a .mkv or mp4 of it so I don't have to watch it on the computer. It doesn't seem to be on Netflix yet, and a quick search on btjunkie seems to kick back fakes
