Terence Winter, lo sceneggiatore di The Wolf of Wall Street ed il creatore di Boardwalk Empire, parla del nuovo film di Martin Scorsese e della sua somiglianza con Quei bravi ragazzi.
“It is very much [in that vein]. It’s sort of written in the same style, voice-overs, it’s a very fast movie, it’s really a wild roller coaster ride.
They’re basically despicable [people] in terms… the crimes they’re perpetrating on innocent people. But because they’re so wild and fun and you’re living vicariously through their antics you find yourself forgetting that… Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, they’re so entertaining, fun and seductive that you kind of go along for the ride with them. They’re so basically despicable in terms of the lifestyle they’re leading, and what they’re doing and the crimes they’re perpetrating on innocent people.
But because they’re so wild and fun and you’re living vicariously through their antics you find yourself forgetting that these people are horrible. They’re robbing people and ruining people’s futures. I think that’s part of it: exploring those themes of money at the sake of everything else. We reward these guys because they’re successful and you forget how they got that way.
I think you’ll find it’s interesting how incredibly funny, charming and seductive Jonah and Leo are. Keep that in mind when you watch it and you go, ‘Wow, it’s easy to see why people fell for these guys,’ they let them run wild.”
