additional description:
One of the most revealing aspects of Money Never Sleeps is the association the film makes between corporate consumption and cannibalism. Gekko remarks at one point that, “parents are the bones on which children sharpen their teeth”. Elsewhere, Goya’s famous painting, ‘Saturn Devouring his Son’ hangs prominently in an office belonging to a rival business executive.
The painting you can also see in the later scene (01:52:48).
