The Wolf of Wall Street
You’d think from the title that The Wolf of Wall Street would be about Wall Street – but the world of finance is just a backdrop. The focus of the movie is the real-life story of how Jordan Belfort schemed and lied his way up the ranks of stockbrokers to become a drug-addicted, sexoholic. Leonardo DiCaprio, who has become somewhat used to playing crazy rich men, has the lead role, and he is thoroughly convincing. Jonah Hill is the side-kick who idolizes him. Martin Scorsese directs. Well made movie – but it should have been rated NC-17. Way too many scenes of sex and drug use. Degrading to women.
