Now that's a candid admission
I'm afraid that if I go to see it my blood pressure will go through the roof. I watched the trailer and it was starting to make me mad. It still looks like it could be good though. I honestly cannot bring myself to add dollars to the bank account of an ex-fraudster and and ex-thief, no matter how good the film is. The justice system is broken when a thief wearing a three piece suit can steal 200,000,000 dollars and get the same kind of time some people would get for stealing a loaf of bread. I also thought it was interesting that the only people he had to pay reparations to were stockbrokers. It looks like the investors he defrauded got nothing. How many people did he financially ruin? He now runs around as a motivational speaker?! Who the hell could take anything an ex-con artist has to say seriously?
22 months in jail? He should have been duck taped to an office chair and gotten the same treatment as that book critic in Cloud Atlas. It's tiresome seeing thieves getting away with financial murder because they happen to wear three piece suits and rob with you with a pen, instead of zoot suits, fedoras and gats.
Edit: I should qualify this and say that he apparently got reduced time for "cooperating" with authorities, but still........22 months? You've got to be kidding me.
