What can I say–I’m a DiCaprio fanboy. He just nails every role, and he’s absolutely great in The Wolf of Wall Street.
The movie is a recounting of the life of Jordan Belfort, a Wall Street scam artist that led a horde of financial marauders in the 1990s and bilked hundreds of millions of dollars out of unwitting investors. At the peak of the operation, Belfort was making thousands of dollars per minute and was spending it as fast as he could: cars, houses, yachts, hookers, drugs, you name it.
While I’m not quite sure what the argument of the movie really was (if you have enough money you can get away with anything?), it’s thoroughly entertaining. DiCaprio and Hill are really good and their antics are like a derailed train that just keeps smashing through everything in its path–shocking, but you have to keep watching.
