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....

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.

The above quote is attributed to Jordan Belfort, the real life rogue trader who set up "pump and dump" Long Island stockbroking firm and who is portrayed in 'The Wolf of Wall Street" as a daredevil sybarite with an appetite for drugs and prostitutes (both A-list). The film is a crazy, more often than not over-the-top black comedy staring our boy Leonardo DiCaprio (simply put: amazing), Jonah Hill (a good laugh) and Matthew McConaughey (charismatic as always).

In theory, Belfort is an American anti-hero, he embraces the destructive and obnoxious side of the late twentieth century America with its obsession on all things material and capitalism generally. Belfort's extravagant antics (from illegal money making machine to money laundering) in the nineties helped, it is believed, to get the financial crisis of 2008 on its way.

The three-hour saga of life (and near-death, a number of times) of the sexist, witty, self-deprecating and occasionally romantic Jordan Belfort is deranged and exhilaration, everything about his life (and the film itself) is excessive. Yes, the screen play is witty and the characters are all fantastic (and fantastically portrayed), the film is enjoyable, but only, I found, in the first 90 minutes or so. Then it becomes somewhat tiresome. And the moral? Is there one? Vanity Fair accused 'The Wolf of Wall Street" of praising and glorifying criminal behaviour and lack of morals in the finance, food for thought, eh?

The bottom line: Leonardo DiCaprio is fantastic, when you are tired of the repetitive imagery of endless cocaine parties and naked women, he shines his artistic star. DiCaprio carries the film to its glorious (and long-awaited) finale!
