Boiler Room (2000)

The references to "Wall Street" and "Glengarry Glen Ross" are not
simple accidents. In fact, Ben Younger's "Boiler Room" could almost be
seen as third film in a loose trilogy dealing with shareholder
manipulation. At the very least, it matches those films in terms of
quality. Giovanni Ribisi, Vin Diesel, Ron Rifkin, Nicky Katt, and Ben
Affleck (among others) make up the excellent ensemble cast. Vin Diesel
is so good that it makes me wish he could return to his pre-"Fast and
the Furious" days. Affleck is surprisingly serious as well. Ribisi
covers a wide and difficult range of emotion, including a heartbreaking
relationship with his father (Rifkin).

"Boiler Room" is one of the best films of recent memory, and possesses
a level of quality rare in modern cinema.
