Do you have thirty minutes to spare? This isn’t just like any thirty minutes, and, no, this is not Jordan Belfort trying to sell you on something. From the moral motivations and the moral depravities of Mr. Belfort to the specific techniques Martin Scorsese uses in his divisive, excessive film The Wolf of Wall Street, video essayist Milad Tangshir presents the “Lessons of the Wolf”, a comprehensive video essay examining narrative structure, editing, characters, and music, as well as how the film fits within the context of Scorsese’s filmography. Class is about to begin, so I suggest you take notes.
