Language Language is very strong and constant, mostly involving "f--k" and all permutations, but also "s--t," "c--t," "c--k," and just about every other obscene word imaginable.
Finally, like Henry Hill before him, Belfort has to swallow hard and confront the possibility of betraying his partners to minimise the inevitable jail term. But no sooner has Jordan settled in than Black Monday arrives and the bottom falls out, of the market and L. And we inhale so deeply that it is only afterwards, when the comedown sets in, that we start to reflect on Jordan Belfort, what he did to make his money and what he did when he got it.
The legendary Martin Scorsese 's the director, and most movie buffs will want to see this, but as with GoodFellas and Casinothis one's not recommended for kids of any age. Belfort makes his way to stardom and fame by selling the stocks at just six cents per share in his self-made investment brokerage firm in an abandoned garage.
Which really involves which drugs to take at which point during the day. Nor have Scorsese and screenwriter Terence Winter brought any retroactive moralizing to bear on the material.
Violence There's a terrifying storm at sea that nearly capsizes a yacht. Matthew McConaughey comes and goes, but his presence is indelible, being not only hysterical but inspiring Belfort to adopt the business practices and lifestyle that will lead him to jail.
Thus, it becomes a little lengthy as the director has to portray each and every scene. Directed by Martin Scorsese.
Anderson spring to mind — but the sense that this is determined not to be a typical Scorsese movie. As he rises to the top level, he gets more and more addicted to drugs.
Belfort starts getting rich through selling unregulated penny stocks over the phone in a "chop shop": Jordan Belfort actually is the cool, smart, sophisticated Buddy Love, but with the aid of serious chemicals he transforms himself into the gibbering Dr.
In the opening scene, traders play a cruel game in which they toss dwarves at a big target. The movie describes the effect of taking Quaaludes, and one sequence is dedicated to a memorable night in which he takes an extra-strong dose. The major plot turn in the movie is when Belfort and his company, Stratton Oakmont, are investigated by the FBI for fraudulent activities.
A secondary character is also a heavy drug user. As dramatis personae go, Belfort lacks a tragic dimension: As dramatis personae go, Belfort lacks a tragic dimension: This live-action variation on the old Looney Tunes cartoon in which Bugs Bunny and the mad scientist get high on ether fumes reveals heretofore unknown reserves of physical comedy in DiCaprio.
For the first time, it feels like he has genuine disdain for his main character, and this frees him to humiliate Jordan in endlessly entertaining ways. A lot or a little. While the film feels long at spots the running time is justified by the time span being covered.
The film may not be loaded with gangster's delivering F-bombs, but it has more than it fair share from the men of Wall Street. It's a great moment: One of the best movies of Martin Scorsese. The movie has numerous monologues and a handful of epic verbal confrontations -- none better than when Jordan and Denham have their first face-to-face meeting.
It is one of the good choices to look forward to during the weekend. By the end of the film, Belfort has transformed from huckster to evangelist, and it is his messiah complex that brings about his downfall.
And if we suspect that in the financial world agrees with former Barclays CEO Bob Diamond that its "period of remorse needs to be over" — well, maybe Belfort is the broker for our times. Many of the traders at his firm are shown briefly having raw, graphic sex with prostitutes and other women.
