Would've been better if he died or reformed somehow. all the characters are morally reprehensible which makes it annoying to watch. but after the beginning they're all conning rich people which is less bad but still wasting all the money on dumb stuff. too much objectification of/violence against women on screen. also had to see the main character rape his wife which was gross. which is absolutely the point (see also: scene where they talk about people with dwarfism as another species) but as i say every time - that doesn't make watching it enjoyable at all! but the female characters are all solid. a big fan of Teresa Petrillo's brief but wonderful characterisation. big fan of the FBI agents and lawyers. but what jordan said during their talk about him being a small fish in corrupt pond was hella valid. anyway really well made and pretty funny. never laughed aloud but it was like the way global warming is funny.
I didn't think how awkward it was watching this one with the family. But The Wolf Of Wall Street was amazing!!! At certain parts I was a little uncomfortable with some scenes and this was because of family over. But the movie had me at all emotions I felt sorry for Jordan and laughed so hard at other parts of the film. I can see why this movie did well.
If you by any chance worried that Scorsese had gone soft after "Hugo" then worry not! This movie is based on real events, and if these events were even half as crazy as this film, then oh boy! It's a celebration of sex, drugs and money, often at the same time! DiCaprio is great and so is the rest of the cast, it's a total blast!
Loved the story and how realistic the story is to real life wall street
