leonardo-dicaprio-the-wolf-of-wall-street_4017012 New Martin Scorcese’s movie The Wolf of Wall Street has been accused of glamorizing crime.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays real life stockbroker Jordan Belfort in the film, has spoken out to defend the idea behind the project. The actor believes that Hollywood should explore the dark side too.

He tells Sky News, “From what I understand, Belfort is not making anything from this movie, but that being said, we can’t all do films about Gandhi, you know? Without films like this there would be no Citizen Kane. Without films like this there would be no There Will Be Blood. We have to do films about the darker nature of us.”

    If there is a movie bout our dark side, it doesn’t mean it is necessarily glamorized, it is just showing the other side of life, the reality the way it is. It is great when the viewers can see another life, another side, another outlook, another way of thinking. Why not. such movies should be in modern cinematography and please let the viewers judge and select what they want to watch and tickets to what movies to buy. Thank you.
