Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the 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.
THE HOOT OF WALL STREET!

People say this isn't as good as other Martin Scorsese films ... well, I haven't seen many Martin Scorsese films, so I can't comment on that. In this film, Scorsese looks at crime from a middle-class, white collar, suburban, WASP/Jewish perspective. It's the story of an amoral stockbroker, Jordan Belfort, who runs his firm like a college frathouse. It's very funny - if you don't think think about all the lives Belfort ruined. Apparently it holds the record for the number of F-words in a mainstream film. I don't know about that - but it does hold the record for the number of Leonardo DiCaprio butt shots! It's the highest-grossing R-rated film in Australian history, and it might make baby boomer film fans nostalgic for the days in the early Nineteen-Seventies when R-rated films were common (these days they are as rare as G-rated films!), and sex, swearing, and drug use in a film was 'liberating' and oh so Gough Whitlam. Includes a brief homosexual orgy scene (not including DiCaprio).
