You don’t have to look too hard to find somebody complaining about The Wolf of Wall Street out there on the internet. Whether it’s the supposed glorification of hedonism and greed, the graphic female nudity, the sheer volume of f-bombs, or the fact that Jonah Hill is in it, the film’s pretty much got something for everybody not to like.
So what does the film’s director, Martin Scorsese, think about all the criticism? Well, in a nutshell, he’s not losing too much sleep over it.
Scorsese recently sat down for a little web chat with Tom O’Neil, editor of Gold Derby, and the renowned director basically says that while it can be frustrating, he’s ultimately just happy people are talking about the film at the time of it’s release, because that means he’s touched on something that matters.
If you’re a real film junkie, you’ll want to check out the entire interview, which goes on for about 15 minutes. If you’re a casual filmgoer, meh, just watch the first couple of minutes, then go back to looking at pictures of hot babes.
