Man, those guys partied so hard in that movie.  Did you see how hard they were partying?  They were partying so hard.  Remember that scene where they were partying with with the coke.  They were partying really hard with that coke.  Out of the 25 scenes in the movie where they were partying, that was the best of the ones where they were partying with coke.

Read up on the movie "Winter Kills". Funny money does go to finance movies from time to time.

I think this is more common than we think.  I was watching a documentary about the ins and outs of an actor trying to get a movie produced (of course I can't remember the name of the got damned thing) that was pretty interesting.  Apparently the only way to actually get the thing shot on budget would have been using the production to launder drug money.  Movies can be pretty high risk/low return endeavors.

The Iraq and Afghan wars were financed with ill-gotten money and we're worrying about some movie?

They set out to make a movie about how depraved and pathological Wall Street is, but instead made one about how depraved and psycho Hollywood is. It may be the most unintentionally ironic film I've ever watched.

What, did they get funding from HSBC?

Snorting Blow off a hooker's A$$. Sweet... but also, doing the super hot blonde biatch... just goes to show you; for each and every super hot piece of tail out there, there is some guy sick and tired of her whiney biatching; and wanting to get a little fresh talent. Welcome to this farker's life! (The sick and tired part, and wanting to travel to exotic locales and try out the local talent!)

Well, if that's the case, then I guess the dirty financing really is just an artistic flourish.

It was close to the book, made even more believable by all those tales of investment firm excess that came out during the crisis of 2008. I remember reading that after the bailout, one of the firms that received funds blew like $5 milliion on a weekend retreat. Do you really think that money was spent on graham crackers and milk?

Thank you for the spot on sarcasm......I agree

For whatever reason, in a movie consisting entirely of extreme absurd comedy, that line had me falling out of my chair.

They didn't mean to glamorize the illegal and decadent behavior of the main character, who is now living a very good lifestyle and using the support of Leo to make even more money. And if they did glamorize that conduct, it was totally an indictment. Ironically.

I just think it's not a very good movie. I don't understand all the awards. Out of the Furnace, which got no awards, was a better movie. So was American Hustle.

So, lessee. The plaintiffs are basing their claims on vague "published reports that individuals based in Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia and other countries in Asia and the Middle East have engaged in unlawful activities."

Yep, that sounds 100% believable and criminal and totally verifiable and in no way bullshiat to me!

"American Hustle" was the most overrated movie of the year, although Bale was great in it, and Lawrence fantastic.
