    Wolf of Wall street is a 3 hour sausage and sexist feast made for teenage
    and early 20’s frat boys or males who are at that level of immaturity.
    And of course since its Martin Scorsse the MPAA brought the rating down from NC-17 to R so all the 15 year old boys can see the film, glorify it and repeat lines from it. Big whoop that a woman in her 70’s wouldn’t enjoy it. It’s not made for most women regardless of their age nor for mature men (for the love of Christ just look at the first line in the movie; put your dick back in your pants). The women in the film are nothing but props and sex objects. If this movie had Michael Bay’s name as the director (same exact movie) no high minded critics would be defending it as though it’s high art. It’s brainless teenage boy entertainment.

    “Wolf of Wall street is a 3 hour sausage and sexist feast made for teenage
    and early 20′s frat boys or males who are at that level of immaturity.”

    Hardly. Not sure what movie you saw, but The Wolf of Wall Street is in no way a movie that 15 year old boys would care anything about seeing. For adults, however, it’s the best film released in 2013. Scorsese and DiCaprio have gone to the top of their careers. You just don’t get better than this!

    It was trimmed a number of times before it got its R.

    Which reminds me: its three-time Oscar-winning editor is a 74-year-old woman.

    It is also auspicious that Sam Taylor-Wood’s editor on FIFTY SHADES, Anne V. Coates, also edited LAWRENCE OF ARABIA and is 88 years old.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
