I was reluctant all awards season to spend $15 that sadly would break my bank in dec of 2013 (don’t worry it’s 2014 and my bank account has reached triple digits #blessed) but I finally watched it for free last night night (I LOVE THE INTERNET)…that should probably be the name of this blog. When the movie started I was preparing myself to sit still without distraction for 3 hrs and watch it with my mother who yells at me when I text during movies even if we’re on her couch, but this isn’t a film that grabbed me instantly, however, when I learned that Jordan Balfour (leo’s character) was just a man who loves drugs and women and wanted to live his life high as a kite and happy as a clam I was hooked. He goes against every feminist bone in my body and represented the 1% but I felt connected to him…he was just addicted to feeling good and that I can fucking relate to. Also Leo on quaaludes is EVERYTHING. I’ve always loved young Leo and not really given a shit about his career over 30 when he started playing the same character in every Scorsese film ever made, but I’m a fan again…give the man his Oscar and we’ll all just pretend it’s for gilbert grape, and basketball diaries and romeo and juliet and that scene in Wolf of Wall Street where he takes quaaludes and throws himself down a flight of stairs.
I’d let Margot Robbie give me AIDS.
