UltimateMovieRankings’s review published on Letterboxd:
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). Movie depicts his rise and fall in the powerful world of Wall Street. Be prepared to go one one crazy and mind boggling ride. The life of Jordan is filled with drugs, crime, sex and most importantly greed. He makes Michael Douglas' Gordon Gekko from Wall Street look like a saint.
The performances in this movie are very impressive. DiCaprio's performance will be remembered for a very long time...I used to not be a huge fan of his....but he has finally won me over.....give the man an Oscar and make it quick. Jonah Hill continues to impress as an actor, and even manages to steal some scenes from DiCaprio. Matthew McCongaughey has a small but important part as he sets up the crazy rules of success that DiCaprio eagerly follows. Rob Reiner's 1st role in 10 years is hilarious...as he seems to be the only sane person in a roomful of insane people.
Martin Scorsese somehow manages to make a 3 hour movie seem short. Wolf of Wall Street is yet another incredible movie in Scorsese incredible career. This is a movie that you have to see....if you are one of the few people that have not seen it already.
