I’ve been reading a few books, but haven’t finished yet. So I decided to post a review of The Wolf of Wall Street (the movie). I admit that I haven’t watched it before yesterday. It’s unbelievable how much praise it got. Seriously. And here’s why.
Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort. From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title “The Wolf of Wall Street.” — (C) Paramount
