The Wolf of Wall Street Review: Martin Scorsese’s Twisted Triumph

by at .  Updated at . Comments

There is something oddly compelling about the characters at the heart of Martin Scorsese’s latest, The Wolf of Wall Street. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the real life financial tycoon Jordan Belfort, who spent two dozen months in federal prison for fraud. Scorsese’s movie chronicles the wild and debaucherous ride that put him there. What’s crazy is how the audience pulls for him every step of the way, and it's thanks largely to the firestorm of a performance given by DiCaprio.
