“The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013)

I really enjoyed watching this film, although not quite as much as everyone else seemed to. This film’s portrayal of scummy Wall Street brokers is entertaining in a “I’m curious to see what crazy thing is going to happen next,” kind of way. Leonardo DiCaprio was the perfect casting decision to portray Jordan Belfort, a character that would’ve come across as a lot more unsympathetic if played by a lesser actor. At a gargantuan 3-hour runtime, this film is a touch too long, and the debaucherous party scenes kind of blur together and get repetitive. This is a compelling and entertaining dark comedy, that is worth watching if you can handle the film’s extreme content.
