Open Outcry documentary

Another great film, probably my favorite overall regarding trading floor documentaries, is Open Outcry which was filmed at the CME in late 1999 and early 2000.  I mentioned it years ago on the blog but noticed that the studio put up the trailer within the past few months so thought to repost it.  Buying the DVD is the only way to watch it as far as I know because it's not streaming anywhere at the moment.

It's a favorite because it was filmed when I first got to the Merc and a clip shows a group of new clerks I was part of learning hand signals during filming on the second week of November 1999.  That aside, Open Outcry is also great for the wide, lingering shots so it's like you're standing on the trading floor while watching the movie.
