Here is an addtl. article on this that adds to the discussion. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/christopher-rosen/wolf-of-wall-street_b_4512756.html

This was the only movie I had on my "must see" list, and now it's the only movie on my BOYCOTT-AND-GET-EVERYONE-I-KNOW to boycott list. I'm sick because unfortunately, we know more of the "story" reading this letter than we would have ever known seeing this movie. I hope she has communicated privately and DIRECTLY with Scorsese and DiCaprio.

Yet, this IS how "we" do things in America. Hollywood's reality might be someone's regret. . .and that someone isn't necessarily a "celebrity" (ala Brittany Spears, Lindsay Lohan) who could give two hoots about regret. . .THEIR regrets always sound like $$$$$ ka-CHING! And for pete's sake THEY would surely NOT change their names. A WHOLE LOTTA lipstick on the pig. . .

Thank you, Ms. McDowell for giving some of us the opportunity NOT to support this film - as much as I admire both men's work and as much as I wanted to see this work - I can't, and I won't.

Damn, I like Scorcese films and this one's now on my do-not-watch list.

  • "The hallmark of revolution is that the goals of the revolutionaries cannot be contained by the institutional structure of the society they live in. As a result, either the revolutionaries are put down, or some of those institutions are transmogrified, replaced, or simply destroyed. We are plainly witnessing a restructuring of the music and newspaper businesses, but their suffering isn’t unique, it’s prophetic." --Clay Shirky
