The Wolf of Wall Street Blu Ray|
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.

Martin Scorsese directs this award-winning account of 1980s New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort's pursuit of wealth. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Belfort, who brags about earning just shy of one million dollars a week in one year and has long been involved in manipulating stock prices for his own financial gain. Heading a committed team at his Stratton Oakmont brokerage house in Long Island, it isn't long before he attracts the attention of the FBI who are suspicious of his increasingly lavish and hedonistic lifestyle... The supporting cast includes Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill and Jon Bernthal. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (DiCaprio) and Best Director (Scorsese), and saw DiCaprio pick up the Golden Globe for Best Actor - Music Or Comedy.

Based on a true story, The Wolf of Wall Street charts the rise of fall of rouge trader Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) whose career began in 1987 and came to an unceremonious end just over a decade later.
Director Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas) takes us on an epic journey from Belfort's first day on Wall Street, to the market crash on Black Monday, depicts his part in the penny-stocks scam and shows us how a series of shady deals by his brokerage firm; 'Stratton Oakmont', brings them to the attention of the FBI.
The Wolf of Wall Street is a cautionary tale about corporate greed but its' also a satirical look at hedonistic banality and how we define success. Leonardo DiCaprio puts in a superb performance as the smug stockbroker who's edging ever closer to the abyss: DiCaprio displays some great comic timing, crisp delivery of the witty dialogue and even manages to pull off a little slapstick. The supporting cast are uniformly excellent and we're treated to memorable performances from Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Kyle Chandler, Joanna Lumley and Jean Dujardin.
The world of finance is also a character in itself; one that tempts, rewards, betrays and deceives all who enter. For Belfort, its an unwieldy phantasmagoria of sex n' drugs and stock-control, one that will do with him what its done to others before. And in that sense, The Wolf of Wall Street has thematic similarities with Goodfellas; in that Belfort, like Henry Hill, narrates the story of his downfall with nostalgia and bravado. Belfort never apologies for his crimes because he doesn't think there's a case to answer, if anything, his only crime was getting caught.
Now the subject matter isn't new so there's some inevitable overlap with films like Boiler Room, Glengarry Glen Ross, Wall Street, The Informant! and Margin Call, but the Wolf of Wall Street is still a great film in its own right and the best Scorsese-DiCaprio collaboration since The Departed. A must see.
