Wolves and wheels


Over at The Bygone Bureau, I have a short piece talking about two movies: The Wolf of Wall Street and The Third Man. I meditate on the famous ferris wheel scene in Third between Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten, where Harry Lime is forced to talk about his penicillin scam, and how Lime’s thoughts are echoed by Leonardo DiCaprio’s greedy stock broker in Wolf.

You can find the piece here.
