When Jordan Belfort shows up at a gritty Long Island strip mall answering an advertisement for brokers, he enters a store-front with a sign above it touting "Robert Mancuso Accounting." This is an insider's nod to veteran camera assistant Bobby Mancuso, who not only worked on "Wolf" but on two other major releases the same year: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) and Inside Llewyn Davis (2013).

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.
