Trivia

The Buscemi T.V. clip also connects with the movie's broader link with two H.B.O. series The Sopranos (1999) and Boardwalk Empire (2010), since "Wolf" includes Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter, and actors Cristin Milioti, Jon Favreau and Chris Caldovino. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the film, Jordan puts his daughter in a late model R129 Mercedes SL500 to take her away from Naomi (either a 1999 or a 2000). Not only does this car not fit the time-frame of this film, but the way he engages the parking brake in reverse (with his right hand pulling upwards) is incorrect on this type of vehicle. The parking brake is located near the brake pedal and must be pressed down with your left foot. See more »

Must See! DiCaprio and Scorsese are Brilliant!!!
30 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By far the Best Movie of the Year, Best Actor, Best Director! The whole supporting cast is excellent as well. This movie will not disappoint it was much better than I expected and the duration of the movie is not felt at all. It definitely did not feel like a 3 hour production. Scorsese put this movie together brilliantly! You are on your toes and engaged throughout from beginning to end. Leonardo DiCaprio is at his best! He will take you through the highs and lows of the movie with an Oscar Winning Performance. I read about Jordan Belfort and it appears that Scorsese and DiCaprio made this movie as accurate as possible which I really appreciate. I commend Scorsese and DiCaprio for keeping this epic picture as authentic as possible. After all this is Hollywood.
