Curio: Money Never Sleeps

Alexa here. When I first heard that Oliver Stone was making Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, I had about as much interest in seeing it as watching an episode of Two and a Half Men. Julien's review from Cannes has convinced me that I should trust my instincts. But if you can't wait for the return of Gordon Gekko, artist Cedric Mnich will happily print some Gekko currency for you.

Cedric, born in France and a former trader, creates art "inspired by the financial markets." He's done portraits of Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke and Bernie Madoff, but has a particular affinity for Gekko.

You can buy your own Gekko $20 bills at his store. Just remember, you can't use them to make a down payment on that home loan.

this is a fun idea given the subject matter of the film. But is it too spot on?

also... since when can $20 help you with a down payment on a home loan? ;)

even a real $20.
