Martin Scorsese capitalises on the mythology surrounding the financial world with this adaptation of the bestselling story of real-life rogue trader Jordan Belfort, played by his long-time collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio.
Neither a celebration of greed nor a misappropriated warning – as WALL STREET became after a legion of young men took Gordon Gekko as a hero – this is a spectacular biopic of a man who epitomised an era. In the 1990s Belfort oversaw a scheme to manipulate stocks, which led to him raking in more than $200 million in personal wealth but also falling foul of the FBI.
Like so many of Scorsese’s films, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET paints a picture of an outlaw life that’s appealing at first, but quickly becomes a nightmare – albeit one that features Lamborghinis, a chimpanzee on roller skates and the destruction of a 167ft yacht.
