"The Wolf Of Wall Street" by Yojimbo

Stockbroker Jordan Belfort climbs to the top of the financial tree with little regard for ethics or law in this true life story of the real face of the "American Dream". The Wolf Of Wall Street courts comparisons with Goodfellas in both style and substance, but compared to the astonishing rise and rise of Belfort, Henry Hill and company look like seedy, small-timer losers and this is why the film both succeeds and fails simultaneously. In Goodfellas, the consequences of their sociopathic actions always surrounds them; even at their best, Scorsese never lets you forget that these "goodfellas" are at their core nasty, self-serving, vicious thugs. The Wolf Of Wall Street on the other hand with its hilarious excess and supremely charismatic and watchable performance by DiC...

The Wolf of Wall Street review

A dark comedy on Wall Street players instead of the usual gangsters. It starts of slow then picks up in the middle and just fizzles towards the end. Jordan Belfort's character reminded me of Tony Montana from Scarface. Everything in excess and coupled with a funny right hand man. The cast shines and Leonardo DiCaprio was spectacular in all aspects. He was very convincing and really shows a total transformation of a mere applicant in Wall Street to a very successful conniving drug/sex addict. It was surprising how most part of the film was funny and in the near conclusion with speech it wasn't that heartfelt and one cannot sympathize for Belfort's actions. Soundtrack, settings and direction were masterful coming from Scorsese. Only minor faults this reviewer noticed were the massiv...

Low-lives meet high life.

The Wolf of Wall Street doesn't beat around the bush. It really doesn't.
If there is one thing I hate in a biopic, it's when the director or production team choose sides with the main character, whether it be a good or bad or normal one or whatever. Trying to show something exactly as it happened without leaning a little one way or another is very difficult, I understand that, but when the right people with the right goals are put on the right projects, this film happens.

Martin Scorsese must be high again, because the film is a non-stop roller coaster of excellence. Not a single boring moment was to be found in this entire film, because of its unique style and perfect (let me type it again) perfect tone to underline what I love about Scorsese and his filmmaking style and movies and f...

Best movie of 2013

If Leonardo DiCaprio does not a Oscar for he's role in this movie then they is going to be a rant.

The film is about a Wall Street stockbroker lives the high life with his likewise wealthy buddies - but the net is closing in around him. But even as the feds close in on one of the largest securities fraud cases in the corporate banking world, he refuses to cooperate in any way.

This is one of the best films of 2013, the acting, the directing was superb with out no words. Martin Scorsese is the best director out they just all of he's movies are one of the best and his other movies never let me down well my by gang's of new York. This movie is three hours and it feels like 1 hour because the movie goes by so fast that I didn't know the movie was almost finish and some people out they l...

Endless Debauchery

'The Wolf of Wall Street' is the most audaciously 'adult' centric film of the year. Scorsese delivers terrific directing, as always, which immerses you in the moment with the characters on screen. However, my time spent with these characters became monotonous with progression. There's flair and flash to these despicable people that makes it entertaining to watch their foul exploits, but the constant barrage of explicit sex and drug use, in LITERALLY every other scene (not kidding), does grow tiresome through the unnecessary three hour runtime. The final act drags due to the excess amount of points where the film could've just ended. This wouldn't have bothered me so much if I was not already worn down by the endless debauchery that precedes in the first two hours. Repetition kills s...

Review: The Wolf of Wall Street

Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese has made one of the cockiest films I've ever seen with The Wolf of Wall Street. It's hilarious, and the film knows that - so it takes full advantage of it and delivers some of the most outrageous comedic sequences you can imagine. The enjoyment factor is sky high, as Scorsese blend his wonderful directorial style with Terence Winter's amazingly gutsy, daring, and provocative script, and the insane ensemble cast who bring incredible energy to the picture. It feels like Martin Scorsese wants everything under his belt, being that he's now at an old age and, well, who knows what can happen (God forbid). So with The Wolf of Wall Street, he's made his first straight, legitimate comedy, and he hit a home run. The film is obviously telling the story of horribly un...
