The Wolf of Wall Street

wolfofwallstreetAfter the Black Monday stock market crash in 1987, Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) finds the perfect little boiler room to start over and turn into a rapidly successful brokerage firm, with a steady supply of money, champagne and cocaine. In Martin Scorsese and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter’s hands, the real-life story of convicted Wall Street fraudster Jordan Belfort turns into a dizzying three-hour bacchanal, a dream-like parade of naked women, drugs, booze and horribly bad nouveu-riche taste that goes hand in hand with the late ’80s to early ’90s style. Very entertaining, with an energetic DiCaprio performanceā€¦ but also a bit too close to earlier works like Casino (1995).

Last word:Ā ā€œI wanted a close relationship with [Belfort] so that I could weave intimate details into the movie, things that werenā€™t in the book. I was kind of the middleman between him and Marty, and I would bring pages of notes from my meetings with Jordan ā€“ things like this insane orgy on a 747 going to Vegas, chimpanzees in diapers that would skate through the Stratton offices, very intimate stuff about his relationships with women ā€“ and Marty was game to try everything. His approach was essentially to put everything onscreen and see what we responded to. It was old-school, really independent filmmaking on a larger scale.ā€ (DiCaprio, Vulture)
