While Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" has delivered the current pinnacle of financial world depravity, it doesn't mean other filmmakers aren't documenting the world of wheelers and dealers with an equally cynical perspective. Costa-Gavras ("Z," "Missing") is the latest, and with his "Capital" arriving on home video today, we have the exclusive opening seven minutes to get you primed on his take on high finance skullduggery.

While Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" has delivered the current pinnacle of financial world depravity, it doesn't mean other filmmakers aren't documenting the world of wheelers and dealers with an equally cynical perspective. Costa-Gavras ("Z," "Missing") is the latest, and with his "Capital" arriving on home video today, we have the exclusive opening seven minutes to get you primed on his take on high finance skullduggery.

Starring Gad Elmaleh, Gabriel Byrne, Natacha Regnier, Hyppolyte Girardot, Lyia Kebede and Bernard Lecop, based on the novel by Stéphane Osmont and the essay "Total Capitalism" by former Credit Lyonnais president Jean Peyrelevade, the story follows Marc Tourneil, who is ushered into the head position at Phoenix Bank when the CEO is sidelined. Set up as a figurehead with the suits behind the scenes pulling the strings, Tourneil soon begins to assert his position and begins a ruthless climb of ambition, as he heads off a hostile takeover from U.S. hedge fund companies and more. And this opening climb nicely establishes the humor and drama of the film.

"Capital" is on DVD and Blu-ray today. Watch below.
