"When you go to a real casino, you know the odds are against you. In Wall Street you don't even know the odds; you don't know what you're doing.""Unless you're inside, you're outside, and nobody's really got a chance," Douglas said.This was in a hotel on the Croisette, overlooking the beach and the festival and lots of people who no doubt felt their ideas for films didn't have a eso gold. Not that it's a perfect parallel, but American movie distribution does seem increasingly to be a system run for the house, which hammers huge grosses out of audiences before they find out that the game is stacked against them."I love the line that Gordon says," Stone said. "You never got it, kid, it's just a game. It's not about the money, it's just a game. They lose sight of the actual worth of the money. It's about beating the other guy. I was with Rupert Murdoch the other night and it was very warm and he was, like, saying money is fungible. It's not about the money, it's about what you do with the money. He'd rather run a media empire. Other people would take their money and they'd wanna transfer it to something else, like take over a bank or swap mortgage home loans.
