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.

Since they figured out how make pictures move, filmmakers have long been fond of using one of the seven deadly sins—greed—as the thematic driving force of their films. From Erich Von Stronheim's compromised masterpiece "Greed" to the slimy dealings of Gordon Gecko in two "Wall Street" movies and beyond, there has been no shortage of characters corrupted by currency. But with the worldwide economy in a more precarious state than ever, and as the term "too big too fail" becomes a rich irony, never before has such subject matter carried so much dramatic potential.

While Costa-Gavras has rightfully earned his place among the great filmmakers thanks to films like "Z" and "Missing," let's be honest for a moment, he hasn't really resonated on the arthouse front since "Amen." in 2002 (and we'll forget "Mad City" ever happened). But it looks like the helmer is coming back in a big way as the stars seem to be lining up for his next project, the topical financial world drama "Le Captial."
