    There have been so many good movies out lately. Twelve Years a Slave was the most powerful film I've seen in years. Inside Llewyn Davies was enjoyable in a harmless kind of way. Whereas this Scorsese flick about Jordan Belfort was outrageously entertaining.

    Is it morally acceptable to celebrate villainy? There's no point in pretending The Wolf of Wall Street doesn't do that, and pretty emphatically too :)

    Read my full review
    A decadent lifestyle of lavish parties, sex and drugs follows. Jordan regularly uses prostitutes and becomes addicted to cocaine and Quaaludes. FBI Agent Patrick Denham (Kyle Chandler) begins investigating Stratton Oakmont. When Jordan meets Naomi Lapaglia (Margot Robbie) at one of his parties, he begins an affair with her, resulting in his divorce from Teresa.

    Jordan makes Naomi his second wife in an extravagant wedding and gives her a yacht aptly named Naomi, and soon they have a daughter, Skylar. Meanwhile, the Securities and Exchange Commission works jointly with the FBI to intensify the Stratton Oakmont investigation.

    It was way way over the top, but it carried three hours pretty well. Very entertaining in a gross kind of way. DiCaprio was brilliant as ever but he's in danger of becoming typecast after Gatbsy and now this.

    Good point. He's become the degenerate rogue of choice. Plays it well though :)

    The expressionistic play between sound and history in The Wolf of Wall Street launches visual salvos against Bergman-esque assertions of the nature of humanity.
