VIDEO COMMENTARY: The Wolf of Wall Street: Dubious Honor

admin | 14 February 2014
About the Author: By Fr. Chris Metropulos, a founder, host, and executive director of the Orthodox Christian Network (OCN) and the “Come Receive The Light” national Orthodox Christian radio program. Fr. Christopher lives with his family in Boca Raton, Florida, where he is the priest at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church.

About this video: “The Wolf of Wall Street” is an Oscar nominee (March 2, 2014) featuring director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio. But Wolf’s most dubious honor is already known: Variety reports that it’s the new record holder for over 500 F-words in an R-rated feature. Is there an Oscar for excessive gutter language? Maybe the real life characters this story is based on talk like that, but it’s a sad commentary on American character…and art.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
