The Wolf of Wall Street - Capitalism and the Seductive Appeal of Cinema (Podcast)

Richard Haridy investigates how Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street both excites and repels while implicating its audience in creating a world that not only excuses but celebrates the excessive debauchery depicted.

Please note: this video essay depicts scenes from The Wolf of Wall Street that are Rated R.

"In this video essay I will show how Martin Scorsese deploys several formal devices in The Wolf of Wall St to illustrate the ways capitalism nurtures some of humanity’s more unpleasant, hedonistic tendencies. I also examine how the film implicates its own audience as responsible for creating a world that excuses this type of excessive amoral behaviour."
