An outrageous, uproarious epic about immoral stockbroker Jordan Belfort, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET finds Martin Scorsese in top form working from a razor-sharp, blackly funny screenplay from Terence Winter. As Belfort, Leonardo DiCaprio runs through the full range of his ample talents, and he?s given brilliant support by Jonah Hill and a breakout Margot Robbie whose career exploded after audiences experienced her dynamite work here. While the film runs a full three hours, WOLF darts forward like a bullet train, moving from one indelible set-piece to another, all while building into a powerful whole. A monstrous, frequently misunderstood masterpiece, this damning indictment of American greed is one of the great films of the modern day that has unfortunately increased in potency in the decade since its release.
