'The Wolf of Wall Street' Was Financed With Stolen Money

Quote:
In a shockingly appropriate turn of events, it turns out The Wolf of Wall Street was financed by stolen money. But fear not: Leonardo DiCaprio (probably) had nothing to do with it.

The production studio that bankrolled the Martin Scorsese movie, Red Granite Pictures, used cash that had been stolen from a Malaysian state investment fund.

$3.5 billion of 1MDB money was stolen altogether, but just $60 million (still a lot) was used on the movie. Red Granite had also financed Dumb and Dumber To and Daddy’s Home.

Didn't really care for it. The Aviator was the last Scorsese movie that I really enjoyed, but I haven't seen Silence yet.

You didn't like The Departed or Shutter Island?

Shutter Island was too melodramatic for me.

I expected more from The Departed. This is the best Scorsese can do with Nicholson, DiCaprio. Daman, Wahlberg, Sheen, & Baldwin? I got to admit I liked it better the second time I watched it. JMO

Historical accuracy is lacking, but I really like it anyway.

Behind There Will Be Blood, IMO. That one's an easy 8/8.

I believe Gangs was before Aviator but agreed, great film. Definitely rooted for The Butcher.

Yeah Gangs of NY is awesome but it's way behind There Will Be Blood imo, which is one of the top five movies ever.
