Leonardo DiCaprio gives his best performance yet in a Scorsese film as sleazeball stockbroker Jordan Belfort. He's so charismatic you can’t take your eyes off him, writes Michael Brooke.
When a film opens partway through a dwarf-tossing contest, you get a pretty good idea of its tone from the off. Martin Scorsese’s rollicking portrait of real-life rogue stockbroker Jordan Belfort is the blackest comedy that he’s made since After Hours three decades ago. There’s no doubt that Belfort’s behaviour (swindling small investors left, right and centre while consuming untold quantities of sex and increasingly exotic drugs) is thoroughly reprehensible, but Scorsese makes it clear that the dominant culture is just as much to blame.
From the moment Belfort first sets foot on Wall Street as a callow 22 year-old, he’s as helplessly in thrall to the power of money as were his counterparts in GoodFellas and Casino, and his methods prove just as underhand: it’s not long before the FBI takes a keen interest in his activities.
Leonardo DiCaprio gives his strongest performance yet in a Scorsese film (which is saying something) as an utterly amoral sleazeball - but he makes Belfort so charismatic that you can’t take your eyes off him.

An exhilarating tale of the unquenchable thirst of greed, Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street tells the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort, a man who goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 1980s.
Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Belfort, who brags about earning just shy of one million dollars a week in one year and has long been involved in manipulating stock prices for his own financial gain. Heading a committed team at his Stratton Oakmont brokerage house in Long Island, it isn't long before he attracts the attention of the FBI who are suspicious of his increasingly lavish and hedonistic lifestyle.
Money, power, women, drugs - temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.
