Trivia

This is the first film for producers Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland under their Red Granite banner. According to them, they decided to finance this film as a challenge in response to the idea that no studio was willing to finance an explicit, over-the-top sex-laced film with a large budget (produced at around $100,000,000). Aziz and McFarland were formerly investment bankers, the bulk of the funding comes from their investors' contacts, mostly from Mid-West Asia. See more »

Goofs

After he has lost his first job on Wall St, Belfort arrives at a dinky plaza in Long Island. He parks his car at the closest parking spot, right in front of a "brokerage" to apply for a job. In the next two shots you can not see the car anywhere in the parking lot, as he passes through the door, and then we look out the window of the brokerage. In both shots we see the parking lot clearly but his car is not in the lot. The car was parked no more than four, or five feet away from the entrance. See more »

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!
