Synopsis:
Martin Scorsese directs this true 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 - earning him 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, more was never enough.

High octane! - The Wolf of Wall Street review by TH

Spoiler Alert
07/01/2015

This film presses all the buttons in terms of sex, drugs and rock and roll (and lots of money!) but its psychopathic (almost exhausting to watch!) pace leaves you in no doubt that this is not a world in which you'd want to live in! Cleverly crafted modern fable.

Gloriously offensive, drug-fuelled, depraved, fun-filled hilarious comedy! - The Wolf of Wall Street review by PV

Spoiler Alert
03/06/2014

This film is just brilliant. It should have won Oscars, for sure. It's probably one of my favourite Scorcese movies now too.

No doubt some 'politically correct' people will find it offensive, as I heard some po-faced humourless feminist whinge-Wendy describe it as on the radio last year.

But really, it's a great ride. Funny and well-written script; great memorable characters; packed with action, searing, sex, drugs and money.

My only criticisms: 1) it's too long, like most Hollywood movies these days; 2) The alcoholic druggies look far too healthy - in real life, it ain't like that!

But these are minor quibbles.

In general, this movie is a hoot - and with a serious message too. I was surprised it was this good - I watched it the same evening as American Hustle, which is yawn-inducing in comparison.

The Wolf of Wall Street should perhaps have won the Oscar for Best Movie, (instead of the tedious up-itself Gravity), and won Leonardo one too for this bravura performance.

Just great - 5 stars with chasers!

One of the best films I have seen in the last decade.

Men behaving badly - The Wolf of Wall Street review by Sortilege

Spoiler Alert
23/06/2014

Martin Scorsese is here in his familiar comfort zone, which he has revisited with varying success, ever since the coup de cinema that was the opening scene of Mean Streets.

This time it’s a group of upstart boiler room scammers, flogging pump and dump stock to the poor, a group which burgeons and swells to some hundred salespeople, red in tooth and phone manner, and awash with illegal substances.

They make shed loads of money of course, and it all goes into the toilet of course, their greed and excess ensuring that there could be no other outcome. There’s lots and lots and lots of hysterical sex, and slightly less drug use, and what little rock and roll appears is provided by Robbie Robertson doing the sound track. The Quaaludes overdose scene is the funniest in the film, with DiCaprio proving that he can do physical comedy, and indeed, all the playing is exemplary.

The film is way too long at three hours- what was Ms Schoonmaker thinking? The sex scenes become a ludicrous parody of mainstream porn with unlovely boiler room sex addicts conducting orgy after orgy, and there were several points at which I almost lost interest but I stuck with it to the finish, partly through horrified fascination.

The film is based on a true story, so it had all the themes of the little guy bucking the system that Scorsese has returned to so often. But the thing is, the real wolves of Wall Street, and Main Street, and the high streets and village streets across the world are not cocky little bastards like Jordan Belfort. They’re the big guys and corporations who still rule the universe, however many financial crashes there may be, and they've not been reduced to touring New Zealand with a tacky sales success course. Did Marty miss a trick in not including them?

Critic review

The Wolf of Wall Street review by George Hooper - Cinema Paradiso

A word rarely used in the same sentence as the name Martin Scorsese is comedy, from dark family dramas like Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore to his much better known crime dramas like Casino and The Departed, Scorsese usually avoids comedy like the plague. That’s what makes it so surprising that he decided to direct The Wolf of Wall Street, a completely unexpected yet awe inspiringly funny film thats hard to imagine being as good under anyone else's direction.

The film follows the titular Wolf of Wall Street, Jordan Belfort (Leonardo Dicaprio), a man whose sole drive is to make more money than the next man. His rise to power on Wall Street and the subsequent FBI investigation are married by Jordan’s extreme love of every single type of narcotic, his (extreme?) affection for women and his willingness to do anything to hold onto the riches he has amassed.

It’s easy to watch The Wolf of Wall Street and see a man corrupted by an industry that corrupts everyone and the film intentionally tries to foster this image but mostly you see a man coming into his true self, an identity he was born to have even if he hadn’t realised it yet. Jordan is a wicked man, a man willing to sell his soul for another dollar even before his slow decline into a world of shame and guilt. Denying his true self however may have left him happier.

Dicaprio is fantastic as usual as Jordan, bringing out every excentiricty of the man but bringing his own charm to the part as he uses those around him to further his enterprises. However, Dicaprio really shines in the films comedy moments, his complete devotion to the material makes for some of the funniest physical comedy with a crazy bender about halfway through the film leaving me in a fit of tears and laughter.

Populated with many other great actors from Jonah Hill to Kyle Chandler, the film is only really let down by Margot Robbie as Jordan’s trophy wife Naomi, a paper thin seductress. The only off note in the entire picture, Robbie doesn’t do the role justice but in the long run it doesn’t harm what turns out to be one of the funniest films you will see in 2014, a mixture of big belly laughs and plenty of drugs. Watching Jordan is a hell of a lot of fun despite his despicable nature.
