Jordan, given the fact that the movie had to be entertaining, how close did the movie The Wolf Of Wall Street come to the reality as presented in your book, and how well the Leo DiCaprio and the cast portrayed the players' lives?

To the extent that the movie implies that this relatively small time hustler was Wall Street's biggest, worst, most notorious or even a representative wolf of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorcese are howling up the wrong tree.

Hollywood elite donned their designer gowns and tuxes as they lauded themselves for exposing the grotesque and horrifying excess of Belfort's world. And then did what? Retreated back into their relatively modest and understated lives?

Of Bonshe and Belfort

Rabbi Doug Sagal

We claim to revere the saintly sacrifice of Bonshe while we secretly (and not so secretly) envy the hedonistic narcissism of Belfort. We extol Bonshe, we ogle the lifestyle of Belfort as an exemplar of success. The truth is that neither model is good.

ReThink Review: The Wolf of Wall Street -- Why Depiction Isn't Endorsement

Jonathan Kim | Posted 03.05.2014 | Entertainment
Jonathan Kim

The Wolf of Wall Street did not create or endorse the corrupt culture and lifestyle it depicts, but simply pulls if from the shadows and puts it on display. If this inspires people to follow Belfort's example, the issue isn't the film.

Without us, someone like Jordan Belfort would have no power. The bankers in "The Wolf of Wall Street" talked people into handing their money over with nothing but a sales pitch. This is a film about a greedy king who built his empire on the desires and dreams of others. "Everybody needs money," Danny DeVito says in David Mamet's "Heist." "That's why they call it money." Jordan Belfort might as well have that on his business card.
