Product Description

Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the 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. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance 7 Jun 2014
Format:DVD
This film is simply brilliant. Lots of people have said it before but they're completely correct- it's a modern day Goodfellas. The rise and dramatic fall of a character who you may even have sympathy with at the end (although sympathy is a very strong word) pays testament to the brilliance of yet another Sorcese/DiCaprio megacombo. The manner in which DiCaprio encapsulates the antihero is astounding and a doff of the (hooker filler drugs) cap goes to Jonah Hill for a brilliant supporting role. I cannot recommend this to (over 18's!!!) enough. At three hours long, you'll wonder how the time flew by so quick....

3.0 out of 5 stars Problematic 28 Jun 2014
Format:DVD
Honestly, this is a big "hmmmm..."

If you mash up Limitless with Wall Street you get this... and at 3hrs, it is a looong film. Broadly speaking, a biopic, we see the debauched and immoral lives of stock-traders from the end of the 80's through to the mid 90's. And of course, it is supposed to echo the nonsensical trading that went out before the current recession.

The problem with this movie is that it suffers from exactly the same problem as Wall St and Limitless - the central character is a drug addled, amoral, criminal. There is no coverage on the effect that his action had (all the blue collar workers who lost their life savings), and it just seems to revel in its debauchery as a pale imitation of Scarface or Blow. I spent three hours wanting Di Caprio wanting him to get badly hurt.

Did he? Not really - three years in jail and then a successful speaking career. Wholly dissatisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wolves, Lions, and FBI don't mix... 22 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not the best Scorsese movie you'll ever see, but it's still worth the risk. We've seen Glen Gary Glen Ross, we've seen Boiler Room, we've seen Rogue Trader, and of course, we've seen Wall Street. How does this compare? How does this hold up? It does just fine, but is fine enough for Scorsese? No....Goodfellas did it a lot better. Cape Fear did it somewhat better. Raging Bull did it much better. i read somewhere this being a 'return to form' after the mediocre Shutter Island, that's a plausible evaluation....

I don't have to tell you the truth do I? I just tell you what you want to hear, right? That means anything I tell you will make you and me a whole bunch of cash. But I don't care if I'm lying about it. I'll tell you anything to get your money off you. Why? Because you don't say no to me....loss of gain is greater than the fear of rejection. Get them so they feel guilty about saying no. Classic sales techniques. 'I could sell artificial snow to the eskimos, and they'd still come back for more'

We hear lots of speeches, to justify his ostentation, his totally hedonistic and materialistic lifestyle and when, at the end of the movie we see the FBI guy look at the ordinary people on the subway, he doesn't look down on them, why? because they didn't get what they've got illegally. Other people have the same lifestyle - footballers, F1 drivers, musicians, etc. so why pick on a stock-broker? What's the big deal? 9 out of ten US bank notes are said to have traces on cocaine on them...how did they get there? Money makes the world go around right?

Wrong. It will cost you your marriage and kids and, eventually, like one Nick Leason found out, six years in jail.

4.0 out of 5 stars I wish I didn't like it as much as I do 20 July 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Version I saw: UK cinema release
Actors: 8/10
Plot/script: 8/10
Photography/visual style: 7/10
Music/score: 7/10
Overall: 8/10
I am very conflicted about The Wolf of Wall Street. You see, accidentally or deliberately, it pulls the strange trick of making me enjoy it while simultaneously making me feel bad for enjoying it.
Like many Scorsese films (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Aviator), The Wolf of Wall Street is a deftly drawn portrait of an exceptional character, who faces pressures and trials very different to those of everyday people, and reacts in ways no ordinary person would. Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) is uniquely driven, but he is also self-centred, greedy, shallow and essentially immoral. As played by DiCaprio, he also has enormous reserves of charisma.
The film follows the essential plot of Goodfellas, charting Belfort's rise and fall. He does abhorrent things to gain success, enjoys that success, and eventually has his comeuppance. Part of me hated him and delighted in his downfall, but another part was drawn in by his personal magnetism, and I found that my gut reaction was to smile when he did well, and be unhappy when he did badly. I was slightly angry with myself for siding with this monster against his victims, and slightly angry with Scorsese and DiCaprio for making me feel this way, no matter how subtly and impressively it was that they did so. I left the cinema feeling a little bit soiled.
