The vibe and story arc were very similar to Goodfellas. Personally though, the two movies are miles apart in quality. The pacing feels off and I just have no sympathy for the main character, it’s not DeCaprio’s acting —he’s great— it’s the character himself. In Goodfellas, Henry Hill (Liotta) has some humility to him, you feel for him, for Jordan (DeCaprio) not so much.
Maybe it’s because of the differences in complexity between fixing the stock market and a bunch…
