Jordan Belfort indulged in many excesses both in life and in fiction. His life is a perfect example of how someone can rise to power so quickly. But the story is about the rise and fall of Jordan. He eventually ends up broke and in jail. There is no happy ending. That is the portion that claims responsibility for the excess. Too bad no one remembers that.
"The Wolf of Wall Street" encourages the kind of excesses in which Jordan Belfort Indulges. The movie seems to glamorize the ill gotten gains of a convicted con-artist Jordan Belfort. By focusing on the excessive indulgences that Belfort took part in during his years as a con-man instead of focusing on the pain of the victims and the ultimate imprisonment of Belfort, the film seems to promote a life of excess.
No more than the Godfather movies encourage violence or the Rocky movies encourage people to be a boxer. A movie is just a movie with people playing make believe. If people get encouraged to act a different way as a result I would argue it is due to them being easily swayed and manipulated.
Another movie with a predictable story line that has been done in one form or another over and over again. The actors did not suite the characters at all it felt like a forced performance. The scenes didn't flow well into one another. Also the story line was all too familiar.
