Hello and welcome to my linkin' blog. My name is Andrew (a.k.a. Sauce) and I am a 34-year-old Southern guy with a love of film, music, art, theater, technology and The Muppets. Since I was already in the habit of emailing a lot of my friends and family with nuggets of the web, this format allows me to do just that. Read it or not, there's always gonna be something here that piques my interest that I felt was worth sharing with y'all.
Marking their fifth film collaboration, here is the trailer for Martin Scorsese’s next film THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Based on the best-selling memoir of the same name by Jordan Belfort, the film tells the story of how Belfort founded brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont in the late 80s/early 90s, which functioned as a boiler room, which is essentially an outbound call center selling questionable investments via telephone. The firm eventually employed over 1,000 stockbrokers and was involved in stock issues totaling more than $1 billion. Belfort led a hard partying lifestyle and had a drug addiction and in 1998, he was indicted for securities fraud and money laundering. He cooperated with the FBI and served 22 months in jail and was forced to pay back $100 million that he took from stock brokers. In addition to writing his memoir and a follow-up Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, Belfort is now sober and is an internationally-known motivational speaker. The film is adapted for the screen by Terence Winter, creator/executive producer of Boardwalk Empire and is set for a theatrical release on November 15th, 2012 in the U.S.
