‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ is directed by Martin Scorsese which based on the life story of Jordan Belford played by Leonardo Dicaprio, who is trying to climb his way up the Wall Street. With the help of his friends Jordan starts a small company and with his immense talent he turns the small company into a huge firm in no time.
He is a drug addict, he is self- centred, he cheats on his wife, he is despicable and you’ll still root for him because he is such a great character and also one of the best characters Scorsese has ever put on screen.He has a great passion for what he does and he can do anything to make him richer (which he does in the movie!).
The movie has got a spot-on cast which includes Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, Margot Robbie, Cristin Milioti and Matthew McConaughey. The best thing about the movie is its acting. Dicaprio kills it as Jordan! He is very energetic and also charming at the same time. Just a few minutes into the movie Dicaprio disappears completely and all you can see on the screen is Jordan. His commitment to the role is incredible.
Jonah Hill plays Donnie Azoff, who is the right hand of Jordan in all the disgusting things they do. Leonardo and Jonah Hill delivered their best performances yet.
Matthew McConaughey has a very brief role but also a very important one. He gives Jordan the motivation which is required to become a successful stock broker. Matthew’s brief role is one of the best things about the movie. Margot Robbie who plays Jordan’s second wife also did a good job.
The Direction by Martin Scorsese is brilliant of course. There’s no need to even talk about it. The editing style he picked up for this movie is quite different though in a good way obviously. The Screenplay is very fast-paced and energetic. There’s not a single dull moment in the movie from start to finish. To be adding emotions and seriousness in a movie with such fast-paced comedy, Scoresese did an awesome job.
The Wolf of Wall Street is highly recommended for you to watch and if you are Scorsese and Lenardo Dicaprio fan, you cannot miss this movie. This was the fifth movie in which the actor-director worked together. I wish they work in many more movies together and keep giving us such amazing performances.
This movie instantly became one of my favourite movies of last year and now is also one of my favourite movies of all time. I give it a solid four point five out of five and recommend you to watch it.
My Rating – 4.5/5
Grade – A+ (My #1 Recommendation)
