The Wolf of Wall Street is actually about Buzzfeed

While some critics saw the Wolf of Wall Street as an indictment on the exorbitant habits of stockbrokers, this isn't necessarily the only interpretation that could be used to understand Scorsese's directorial decisions. There's also a growing school of thought suggesting that the financial theme was actually a metaphor for the modern trend of websites becoming insanely popular despite offering nothing in terms of completely original content.
