BSP Episode 313: The Wolf of Wall Street

Join the gang as they discuss the 2013 film Wolf of Wall Street.

Wolf of Wall Street is the Oscar-nominated latest offering from Martin Scorsese offering a full cast of quality acting, an intense three hour running time, and drug consumption of various kinds. It’s a dramady, mixing over-the-top performances, black humor, and an intense amount of smarm. Wolf of Wall Street is based on the life of Jordan Belfort, a Wall Street con man who made an awful lot of money cheating investors out of their money.

Worth noting:

  • Trivia Night roundup: boozed fruit and terribly written questions.
  • The lonely ladies of one-on-one ghost hunting.
  • It’s a long movie but we don’t mind. It never lags and the pacing stays top-notch.
  • The acting in this movie was spectacular, especially the nominated performance of Leonardo DiCaprio.
  • Spoilers about How I Met Your Mother abound. Protect thine sensitive ears if your DVR is too full and you haven’t seen it yet. Or if you  care.
  • So what were Jordan Belfort’s crimes? Finance geekery abounds.
  • Financial crime movies don’t often show you how the crime works. Perhaps it’s just because financial crime isn’t sexy.
  • We found a new phase: the cerebral palsy phase.
  • Why don’t people know how to use the burner cell phone? It’s like nobody’s seen The Wire.
  • This movie’s profane, filthy, and a really good time. Pro tip (just the tip): we recommend it but you probably shouldn’t see it with your parents.
  • When a dude buys you crack, that’s bro love.
