Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.

The film is almost certainly exaggerated. I don't doubt that the lives of Jordan Belfort and his cronies were off-the-charts wild, but Scorcese seems too desperate to drive the point home. I would have preferred a more well-rounded film that delves into other aspects of the story, like the business. We don't even see one customer.
I'm amazed that this film is only rated R. It's very raunchy and graphic, more like NC-17 or even X.
I have to admit this is a movie that draws you in and takes you on a roller coaster ride. For sheer absurdity and entertainment and based on a true story this is hard to beat. Based on the book by Jordan Belfort I was surprised at time how closely the movie narrative followed the story in the book. Particularly in the opening scenes where Matthew McConaughey acquaints our young rising star with the realities of Wall Street life and gives him some what I would absurd and counter intuitive advice which Jordan lives to the full.
As I think about it now it was three hours that passed in a blur of excitement, perhaps the most entertaining three hours I had at a movie all last year. I liked it even better than American Hustle, with which it shares some thematic similarities, and I think both movies well deserved their Oscar recognition, the other had some brilliant scenes I liked with Jennifer Lawrence., and Amy Adams, very well written roles for women.
You expect Di Caprio to be brilliant and take it for granted he will be, but the revelatory performances in this movie are the stunning blonde actress who plays Belfort's wife, the upgrade. Her name is Margot Robbie, and this movie is a major opportunity for her, and what she makes of it remains to be seen.
The real revelation though is Jonah Hill's performance, which has earned him a second well deserved Oscar nomination two years in a row, as the obnoxious friend and partner of Belfort.Read more ›
The new movie centers on the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), an up-and-coming stockbroker in Wall Street. Befriending Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill), he decides to open his own firm, recruiting several of his personal friends. Their firm, Stratton Oakmont, soon becomes a billion-dollar company. Selling stocks that they know will lose their client's money, their corruption and ongoing greed soon catches up to them.
With plenty of its graphic moments that aren't fit for the kids, Scorsese holds nothing back, creating an interesting atmosphere and throwing you directly into this world. DiCaprio and Hill are an eccentric duo, and their performances pop off the screen. Rated R for sequences of strong sexual content, drug use and language, "The Wolf of Wall Street" is crazy good. It is now playing in theaters everywhere.
I thought that Jonah Hill gave one of his best performances. The production is awfully long, not wanting to miss out on any details. The film goes into detail to explain to the audience things like IPO and the history and effects of quaaludes. If you note the ludes he took early in the film were crumbly. Those were non-prescription ludes made from a pill press in uncle Vinnie's garage and not too potent. Later they score some real ludes. Having taken the fake ones for so long, they didn't know how to handle them causing them to crash, like the money it was too much too fast.
The main criticism of the film is that it featured over 500 F-bombs. It really didn't seem like that many due to the length of the production. Besides you get numb to it after the first few hundred or so.
