“Scorsese has created a movie for the moment—for the age of utter transparency. The secrets are out of the bag. The time is over when a president could use the White House as his private pleasure dome, and Jay Gatsby’s alias and persona wouldn’t last five minutes in the age of the Internet.”
Richard Brody on “The Wolf of Wall Street” – The New Yorker
So i don’t know if i want to see The Wolf Of Wall Street or not.
Scorsese, Di-Caprio, Pluto In Capricorn style themes, it seems like a no-brainer. But this Open Letter To The Makers Of The Wolf Of Wall Street & To The Wolf Himself, from a victim, is really resonant. It begins: “I hate to be the bearer of bad news, dear Kings of Hollywood, but you have been conned.”
It is based, of course, on the book written by stockbroker-crim-con-artiste turned motivational speaker Jordan Belfort, pictured above in all his goo-goo Cancerian goo-goo eyed glory. He has Jupiter on his Sun at the moment and yes, the movie IS brilliantly reviving his career (again), thank you very much.
He has Venus on Uranus in Leo – a classic party-animal aspect – and Mars in late Taurus/early Gemini (no time of birth) square Uranus/Pluto which could arguably go a little bit sociopathic trying to sustain funds for those outrageous Venusian-Uranus desires, you understand. See here his Ten Personal Success Tips – no mention of the time served in jail for stock market manipulation, fraud and ripping off poor people with fake investments lol.
So are you guys (a) not seeing it because you’re over the whole corrupt banksters meme or (b) seeing it as this is – like it or not, a vital story of our times? If you HAVE seen it, does Wolf Of Wall St glorify the dude or not? I mean, i know Cancerians are savvy with money but this is ridiculous. Now he’s shopping a reality show – for a guy who is 51 or something, he looks excellent – maybe remorse is bad for skin tone? i’m guessing Pisces Rising. Thoughts?
