Hedge Fund Film Review

"Blood Diamond" was a well spent couple of hours, DiCaprio was convincing in his role as a Rhodesian "soldier of fortune" and of course theres the well meaning reporter played by Jennifer Connelly.

Quite realistic in its cruelty and bloodshed, it could be classified as fairly disturbing. Djimon Hounsou plays the father and husband of a lost family who alone knows the whereabouts of a stone that will give each of them what they want.

Financed by hedge fund firm Stark Investments, the film has an Oscar nomination, and is causing quite a stir in the world of diamonds. "People wouldn't buy a diamond if they knew it cost someone their hand." Says Maddy Bowen (Connelly) while wading through the bloody aftermath of a raid by child soldiers in the Sierra Leone.

Other hedge fund movies also in the Oscar running this season; "Poseidon." also by Stark Investments, "The Pursuit of Happyness" by hedge fund Relativity Media and "Borat." by hedge fund Dune Capital Management.
