The Famous Film Martin Scorcese with Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Wolf of Wall Street is a 2013 film directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort, a corrupt stockbroker who defrauded millions of dollars from investors in the 1980s and 1990s. The film is based on Belfort’s memoir of the same name, and depicts his rise and fall in the world of finance, as well as his extravagant lifestyle of drugs, sex, and crime.

The film has received critical acclaim for its energetic and irreverent style, its dark humor, and its performances, especially by DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, who plays Belfort’s partner in crime Donnie Azoff. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay, but did not win any.

The film has also been criticized for its excessive and graphic depiction of Belfort’s debauchery, and for its lack of moral judgment on his actions. Some critics and viewers have argued that the film glorifies Belfort and his crimes, and fails to show the consequences of his fraud on his victims. Others have defended the film as a satire and a cautionary tale, and praised Scorsese and DiCaprio for their artistic vision and courage.

Floskeln: „Wir müssen Fluchtursachen bekämpfen“, sagen Merkel und andere immer wieder. In Wahrheit sind die Ursachen der Migration – die von Krieg und Hunger bis zur Korruption der lokalen Eliten reichen – zu komplex als dass sie eine externe Macht lösen könnte. Die Korrupten lassen sich das Korrumpieren nicht verbieten, die Dealer nicht das Dealen so wie die Krieger nicht das Kriegführen. Nur ein gewaltsamer Neo-Kolonialismus könnte für Abhilfe sorgen – aber wahrscheinlich nicht mal der.
