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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wall Street Wolf Pack 27 July 2014
Format:DVD
"The Wolf of Wall Street" is an overly long black comedy about a crooked Wall Street broker who makes his fortune in the 1990's. The lead role is played with gusto by Leonardo DiCaprio who seems to have subscribed to the Jack Nicholson school of acting.

The whole movie is so completely over the top with a large amount of foul language, sexual depravity, drug abuse and general bad behaviour that it is hard to believe that it is supposedly based on a true story. Its this outrageous behaviour that gives the movie its best moments though as you can't help but laugh at the hedonism on display.

Unfortunately though for most people with any sense of morality the characters portrayed in the movie are a group of the most unlikeable, unethical, greedy and dispicable people you can possibly imagine. If you consider that people like these were responsible for the worlds financial difficulties in the new millenium you wonder who it is you are supposed to empathise with. There are many similar movies dealing with the rise and fall of drug dealers, and it seems that anti-heroes are popular with cinema audiences at the moment. I found it difficult though to sit through a three hour long movie where all the main characters were scumbags and there seemed to be little moral judgement of their behaviour.

"The Wolf of Wall Street" has its moments, but it is far from being a classic Scorsese movie. The film never convincingly feels like it is set in the 80's and 90's and while they obviously had fun filming it I noticed a large number of continuity errors between shots which was surprising for such an experienced director. You can't help but compare this movie to the old Michael Douglas film "Wall Street" of which it seems to be an updated, more exagerrated version but one with a lot less charm.

This movie is not a rarity.As with all of Scorsese's works it has character,impeccable direction,and a message.Di Caprio gives a most convincing performance and the rest of the cast(most of them unknown actors)are very good puppets in the hands of the master puppeteer, Scorsese.
Yet the movie has shortcomings,as well.One ,it is unnecessarily lengthy.Two,there is repetition ,especially in the drug abuse schenes.
Scorsese apparently tried to draw a picture of what constitutes,for many decades now,the "succesful" financially ruling class in the U.S.A sum total of people who have no values or ideals whatsoever,who create nothing,produce nothing and idolise wealth which they pursue deceiving,hurting,and financially destroying as many simple people as they possibly can.
All this in order to lead a life of luxury,sex and drugs.These three "items" constitute the "meaning of life" in the new american society.No b.s. about country,flag,honour,principles,ideals,religion etc.Not the usual flag-waving Jesus-saving of most Hollywood productions.Scorsese tells it as he sees it.A society of wolves and sheep,nothing more,nothing less,nothing in -between..
Yet the final feeling is ambiguous.It encompasses both awe,and disgust.Whilst one cannot say that anything in this movie is incorrect,innaccurate,or just plain "wrong",a feeling of nausea prevails at the end.Especially since there is no real "catharsis".Ergo,there is no hope.
It is an interesting movie.Disgusting in its social findings,perhaps,yet interesting.Worth watching,and even more thinking about it.But it really is a "black" movie.It is about a society going down the sewer.It is Pompeii ,waiting in all its glittering glamour for Vesuvius to erupt.And the ground is already trembling.

Martin Scorsese makes the same movie over and over these days. Which is not to say that The Wolf of Wall Street is bad, because it's not: Scorsese is still a great - a really great - filmmaker. It's just that, without Leonardo diCaprio's tirelessly motivated and motivational characterisation, this would be a long three hours to spend, following, as it does, the same narrative tropes and pacing of Goodfellas or Casino, replacing the danger-of-death tensions with a lot of shouting and drug-taking.

Just as you might watch every new Woody Allen film and be comfortably entertained by a master storyteller but, in the end, feel slightly short-changed, Scorsese does everything necessary to keep your eyes open and your attention held; I simply want something different next time - and I don't mean Gangs of New York 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, brilliant film 28 July 2014
Format:DVD
I love Scorcese Di Caprio collaborations and was looking forward to this, it didn't disappoint. From the opening scene showing stockbrokers in an office throwing dwarves at a dartboard it was a roller coaster ride of excess. I haven't laughed at a film this much since, well I don't think I've ever laughed this much at a film and given that it's not a comedy that's some result.

People have commented that it is morally reprehensible and disgraceful, c'mon folks it's not Mary Poppins anyone renting this must surely know what they are in for. Brilliant acting/directing/storytelling. De Caprio has never been better, the scene on the plane and the one with the Lamborghini are possibly the funniest in any film.

Absolutely agree it doesn't feel like 3 hours, the time flies by, the end part is less enjoyable but inevitably so.

Just a brilliant film and so much fun to watch, get a few beers and a takeaway and a few mates round - you'll have a ball.
