If you are looking to waste three hours of your life watching the glorification of a narcissistic, douche-bag sociopath who makes a hobby out of exploiting every aspect of business and the people in his life, this is the movie for you.
Based on Jordan Belfort's life (the real life narcissist) this movie is misogyny, corruption, and exploitation on parade. There is no moral, just the showcasing of the worst humanity has to offer. To a man with no conscience, conning people and spending their money frivolously is the only joy life has to offer. Why anyone would want to make a movie showcasing such a disgusting, sad human condition is beyond me.
My main issue with this movie was it's failure to show the repercussions of Belfort's actions on his victims. Real narcissists and sociopaths ruin the lives of their victims and often drive them to suicide. The Wolf of Wall Street negates the real affect of these toxic people in our lives, especially the ones at the top like Mr. Belfort, the ones who operate the top corporations and are literally conning our money out from under us.
The seriousness of the damage Mr. Belfort is committing is eclipsed by the extravagance of naked women & one man, copious drugs (nothing innovative there), and money.
The Wolf of Wall Street is the worst movie I have seen in over a year.
