The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street ★★★★½

This plays like a black comedy but without all the dark dramatic realism. The repercussions of Jordan Belfort's actions on his home life, as well as the threat of legal action, are completely numbed out by bare flesh, barbiturates, and 90s profit hedonism.

Refreshingly, this is not an ode to financial negligence or corporate responsibility, but a riotous and swaggering account of life in the financial thunderdome.
