I agree. And while this isn't anything against Scorsese (he can make whatever films he wants,) I had the sense that this was going to be some sort of take down of Wall St. Except these guys were just run of the mill two bit NY criminal types (complete with Bay Ridge girl friend and everything!) Clearly what they were doing was illegal, and Belfort went to jail for it, but it didn't have anything to do with the problems that led to the financial meltdown. This is a total footnote to all of that. So, for me at least, that made it even less interesting. It's like making a movie about the 1927 baseball season and focusing entirely on the Red Sox.
