The Wolf of Wall Street- you've not seen anything like it before

The Wolf of Wall Street- you've not seen anything like it before

Producer- Martin Scorsese

It stars Leonardo DiCaprio as real-life crook Jordan Belfort, who cheated investors out of $200m with fraudulent share sales through his US brokerage firm, Stratton Oakmont.

The film focuses on the hedonistic excesses of its principals ( Belfort & his associates) as they blitzed through their ill-gotten gains in a blizzard of fast cars, planes, yachts, drink, drugs, trophy wives and prostitutes, office sex( there was misogyny everywhere) peeing in the office, debauchery


Belfort particularly favoured Quaaludes (Methaqualone, a sedative-hypnotic drug ) and the kickass highs it gave.

Leo made villain so cool, so likeable

These people just didn't care

After this, I think anyone would be afraid to trust any stockbroker!

Great acting also by Jonah Hill ( Donnie) , Margot Robbie ( Naomi- Jordan's wife) , Matthew McConaughey ( Mark) and a host of others in the film

Chantalle- "we don't work for you, man"

Donnie- "you have my money taped to your boobs. So, technically, you work for me!"

Great flick

Jordan Belfort spent 22 months in jail and was ordered to pay back $110m
