Katey’s friends call Javier a “spic.” Javier’s family accuse him of literally and figuratively kissing up to the Americans.Part of what makes the film’s social consciousness so lacking in drama is that it is so confused. Even though franchise-creating is a growing obsession in American and world cinema in the 21st century, it has been a thing for much, much longer.The sequels on this list, however, are anomalies – they were made a long time after their original films, and the lack of expediency on the producer’s part usually took a toll in the box office performance and sheer quality of the films.That’s why late sequel Money Never Sleeps, from Stone and with Douglas reprising his role, seems so rote in comparison.It’s a film made with a manifest political and practical agenda, examining a post-crisis financial world, and for that it is pregnant with possibilities, which makes for a distraction as Stone struggles to find a tone and a worthy plot to hang his film on.
