looks interesting but is this movie supposed to be a satire?

 

I think it's supposedly based on real life.  There was a book by the same name and the claim was that it's autobiographical.  No clue how much artistic license was taken though.

I red the book a few years ago. Really bad book and no link at all with Wall Street.

Lots of stuff over his drugs addiction, his whore visits, how he cheats on his wife, how he deals with auditors and how he tries to transport his money to Switzerland.

Maybe DiCaprio can save the movie still.

The year I turned 26 I made $49 million, which really pissed me off, ‘cause it was 3 shy of a million a week

 

Cannot wait to watch this movie! ;D ;D ;D

scorsese is absolutely brilliant at these narrative movies. Just presenting this person's life uncensored in like 2-3 hours and really getting you into their world. No sugarcoating or trying to make characters likeable etc. Added with amazing soundtrack and getting the best performances out of the best actors etc. I think wolf of wall street really nailed that in this movie. ANd i think the people who don't like it get uncomfortable seeing it. But that shouldnt be a reason to rate the movie as bad I think.

I just thought the movie was boring, very dated, and with over the top overacting.

 

If anything he underacted the guy :D

 

Had to turn it off a few minutes in tho. The guy is just dripping with narcisism

 

 

If he's going to make $100M in one year as a motivational speaker, someone must enjoy listening to him.
