Reaction Paper on "Wolf of Wall Street"

By Jonathan M. Santiago

The Film “The Wolf of Wall Street” by Martin Scorsese features dynamism of a businessman. It really takes passion, guts and pure talent to get your goal. “Success” is inevitable if you have the drive to do it. This is based on the memoir by real stockbrokers who have gained so much Jordan Belfort.

According to “THE WRAP” Everybody loves Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” – including, perhaps, people who haven’t even seen it. The three-hour real-life tale of financial skullduggery and personal excess has become the hottest screening ticket in town in the first few days of its guild screenings, with Paramount turning away viewers at SAG, AMPAS, DGA and WGA screenings that began on Saturday afternoon and will continue all week in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and London.

Aspiration and drive make the people going and this film is a test to that. This film for me is really not meant to be watched by young entrepreneur. The high addiction to cocaine, perhaps to all drugs and sex to keep the business and workers drive rocketing is highly not acceptable. Nevertheless this injected cinema tricks made the film exciting and funny to watch. It’s just that the implication of such in the movie made it really confusing for the new blood of businessmen. Maybe this is where the saying goes “the end justify the means” is applicable. They said too that whatever you got fraudulently will never last. Whatever you sow you will also reap ….. Success cannot always be measured by how much money you have gained but of course to how you have touched lives and influenced other in your community, particularly in the society as a whole. If you are really good businessmen just focus on your passion and faith on your business. “Real success comes a Hundred folds."
