Movies are not obligated to provide us with good, moral, individuals. They can show us bad individuals and they are under no obligation to tell us that the characters are bad. None at all. Instead, it is up to us, as viewers, to recognize what we’re seeing to know that the people in question are bad.
Too often we don’t get it. Too often we’re too dumb. That’s a problem. We need to do better. We don’t burn math textbooks because we’re angry that 1+1 doesn’t equal 3. We learn how to do math and we need to learn how to read humanity and right and wrong.
“The Wolf of Wall Street” is out on 4K UHD this month and it provides the perfect example of what we’re talking about. Take a listen to this podcast and don’t forget to subscribe. We’re available download at Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Amazon Music/Audible and more.
