Greed (2019)

A retail billionaire, Sir Richard McCreadie (Steve Coogan), is about to celebrate his 60th birthday. Richard plans to celebrate in a way that his friends and the world will never forget- in a hotel located on the Greek Island of Mykonos. Richard also plans on having celebrities perform at his special event, and he has even arranged a gladiator arena to be built where people can see battles. Oh, and Richard has also demanded to have real lions!

But when preparing such a big party, Richard is confronted with many issues leading up to the big event. The building of the gladiator arena is falling behind schedule; selected band members are cancelling, and Richard discovers many refugees are staying on the beach, leading to him demanding they leave immediately.

To my surprise, the film Greed does not just focus on this celebration event and all the dramas leading up to it. Greed also gives the audience an in-depth look at how Richard came into wealth and fortune thanks to flashbacks and a man named Nick (David Mitchell), who is writing a biography about Richard. We also gain another perspective when Richard’s ex-wife Samantha (Isla Fisher) comes into play.

As a plot, I found Greed slightly odd to begin with. It is about a man and his desire for money. He’s rude, and we see him planning a massive party which the world will never forget. But thankfully, by having patience with the film, I was surprised that as the film progressed the real meaning came out. The true purpose for the film surprised me.

Performances here are positive, particularly from Steve Coogan and Isla Fisher, who both bring very different types of humour to the screen. Greed isn’t a film that has lots of laugh out loud silliness, but is certainly more of a Satire film that contains elements of comedy and drama.

Overall, I found Greed to be a fascinating film. Having lived a life of working in retail myself, I found this film enjoyable the more it progressed. I was also kept curious to understand the film’s true intentions. Greed certainly requires patience from the viewer as there is more to the story than just watching a rich man make demands. Performances from Steve Coogan and Isla Fisher were fantastic, and they brought a satire to the screen which suits fans seeking a film containing both Comedy and Drama. Even with the positive message, I do wish the core of the film was able to have brought bigger laughs and a plot which was more transparent with its intentions earlier on.
