Pointless analogy

Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) is a fantastic film. It's the kind of cinema that lays bare itself while doing the same to you. And when i say you, i'm addressing everyone who is a constituent as well as a beneficiary as well as a victim of capitalism. That's the beauty of Scorsese's filmmaking. He isn't shy to laugh at us for who we have become. 

But that's not the point of this silly blog post. 

The reason i decided to type 10 lines is something caught my thought this morning. In the aforementioned film, cocaine turned out to be an able supporting actor. And every time you see someone snort a line, the punctuation to the shot is complete with the person tilting his/her head back. Now, not to overstretch imagination here, but don't wolves also tilt their heads back? The only difference being one species sighs while another howls.
