So, I was curious as to the masses reaction to the new Scorsese film. Its been getting a lot of heat and press lately on just how hard of an R rating it is, and some screenwriters went as far as calling Scorsese out himself on making a film like this. I went today and came out of the theater not really sure of my thoughts. But the more I thought today, the more and more it's starting to grow on me. It was funny, edgy, Dicaprio gave a stellar performance, and I loved the story and thought it was fascinating seeing as it is a true story.
I was surprised to see so many people leave the theater though. The showing was sold out, I'd say the theater sat close to 200 people, and by the time the movie was over at least half of the theater maybe more had left. My friends family that went had his mother and sister end up leaving and on their way out she said that there was a line of people demanding their money back.
Now I live in the South, and to me I see this being the majority of the reaction below the Mason-Dixon line but above it and out West where people aren't quite as conservative I can see it being received a little better.
So what was your all's opinions? I personally rather enjoyed it and the vulgarity does not bother me one bit. Leave your thoughts below. I'm really interested.
