The Wolf Of Wall Street

Martin Scorsese’s companion piece to GoodFellas. Period.

​In many ways, The Wolf Of Wall Street is a companion piece to Martin Scorsese’s GoodFellas.

Goodfellas (1990)

A perfect title because I wouldn’t call it Greatfellas or Incredifellas, it’s just Goodfellas. Scorsese’s “masterpiece” just didn’t do a whole lot for me. I thought most of the characters weren’t that lovable. 151 more words
