When a man with nothing is given power, we see the true side of who they really are.
Based on a true story a man and directed by Martin Scorsese, Wolf of Wall Street shows how
money and power brings greed, fake friends, and a high life. The film begins with Jordan Belfort
beginning his new job on Wall Street at L.F. Rothschild, under the wing of Mark Hanna. Mark
brings Jordan into this new stockbroker culture with talking about all the hookers, drugs, and sex
he can ever think of. The main thing Mark told him is the main point of all of this is to put
money from other people’s pockets into yours. Jordan soon after decides to open up his own
brokerage firm in Long Island called Stratton Oakmont. His company grew attention quickly and
so did his money. It grew so fast it drew the attention to the FBI. It came to the point where the
FBI came to have a meeting with Jordan on his yacht. Jordan secretly tries to bribe the FBI
Agent and the agent caught on and from there the Agent Denham knew he had Jordan right
where he wanted. After all the hookers, sex, and money he could imagine, it all came to an end.
Agent Durham arrested Jordan and had him betrayed his friends to get less time in prison Money
changed Jordan completely from an honest working man, to a greedy, back-stabbing, and high
life loser. Jordan got too ahead of himself and became this drug abusing animal who ends up
getting him losing his second wife and gets himself and his friends arrested. Wolf of Wall Street
proves to us how money and power can bring greed, back-stabbing friends, and a high life by the
example of Jordan Belfort and his sneaky tactics.
