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.

A sprawling biopic of notorious stockbroker Jordon Belfort, this is grand in scale but minimal in narrative, highlighting the decadence of the Wall Street era in the late 1980s which took control of people’s lives and spat them out once it had finished with them. On the basis that Belfort simply wants to be a success and earn enough money to live the “American Dream”, his path is dotted with greed and excess which derails him more than once and leads to some very dark comedy but also hard-hitting moments for the audience.

DiCaprio nails another excellent role, showing his versatility as the self-assured, confident but self-destructive Belfort who takes us along for the ride with him from trainee stockbroker to Wall Street success. Whether playing for laughs or showing us the darker side to drugs and debauchery, DiCaprio always makes us feel the strain of Belfort but also captures us enough to care for him and what he is trying to do, be it taking cocaine from the rear end of a prostitute or navigating a super-yacht in a violent storm. At the end of the day, he’s a man; a human, who wants simply to be a success at any cost.

An impressive Jonah Hill supports him and has a far greater role than expected to bounce of DiCaprio for the comedic and emotive moments, and there is good general support from the likes of Jean Dujardin, Matthew McConaughey, Rob Reiner and Kyle Chandler. Special mention to Margot Robbie who conveys a great sense of sexuality along with frailty and despair as she is wrapped up in Belfort’s actions, much like us as the audience, and she suffers all the highs and lows with some shocking results and brilliant acting alongside DiCaprio.

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.

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.
