The Wolf of Wall Street *

A far more shocking depiction of degradation and perversity was Salo (Pasolini). The differece is that salo was appropriate as a metaphor for the unspeakable horrors of totalitarianism WW2, which go beyond any boundaries of decorous restraint. The present movie seems a pointless depiction of men falling into the world of animals, using greed for money as an excuse. It merely panders to our lowest instincts, making an unnecessary song and dance about them
