Tucked behind the Goldman Sachs building at 200 West Street, the Regal Battery Park theater was a fitting venue for last night’s free advanced screening of “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Martin Scorsese’s highly-anticipated biopic about ’90s-era pump-and-dump charlatan Jordan Belfort.
Disturbing: Belfort’s decadence.
Equally disturbing: the finance-heavy audience’s gleeful reaction to his behavior and legal wrongdoings.
Credit Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, who played Belfort, for keeping the high-octane, drug-filled movie entertaining for three hours (the longest Scorsese film by about 60 seconds).
