Trivia

Leonardo DiCaprio was obsessed with playing Jordan Belfort since getting hold of the book back in 2007, DiCaprio has been focused on turning the depraved tale of Jordan Belfort into a film. However, he wasn't just interested in this story's connection to the most recent collapse on Wall Street, he was also attracted to Jordan's honest and uncompromising portrayal of what he actually experienced.

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, when Jordan Belfort reveals that on a daily basis he takes enough drugs to supply Manhattan, Long Island, and Queens for a month, he says that he takes Adderall to stay focused. Adderall was not released until 1996, and was not released in a generic form to the market until 2002. Given that the film spans from 1987 to sometime in the 1990's, using "prescription Amphetamine pills to focus" would be much more factually accurate and understood than using "Adderall to focus" during the 1987-1990's time span of the film.

Scorsese's best pic since Goodfellas
30 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last few Scorsese pics left me a little disappointed. I had begun to think Marty had become a 'gun for hire' and that his brilliance may have been spent (his earlier works were some of the best movies ever made). I attended a screening of The Wolf of Wall Street this evening, and was expecting to be unimpressed. I am happy to say I was completely blown away. This pic is Marty at his best. I laughed, I cringed, I related (with fond memories as well as a bit of guilt) and I TOTALLY believed every unbelievable moment. A good book, a great screenplay and a delightful cast were formed and molded into what I believe should get Scorsese a best director Oscar, and likely a Best Picture Award for the movie. Leo DiCaprio has grown into a versatile actor and his creation of this super hero dirtbag's roller coaster ride in this crazy (true) story is really honest and delightfully entertaining. Jonah Hill pulled out all the stops too and this is definitely his best work. Thank you Mr. Scorsese for delivering the goods so brilliantly!
