Did You Know?

Trivia

In the airplane bachelor party scene, actress Maria Di Angelis who played one of the hookers paired with P.J. Byrne (Nicky Koskoff), recounted that the actress paired with Leonardo DiCaprio had to be replaced because she was actually shagging him too enthusiastically and realistically. It was also revealed the scene had to be shot with the actors completely silent while filming it. See more »

Goofs

When Jordan is having a flashback to driving his Lamborghini out of the country club while high on Lemmons, we see him yank the steering wheel to the left; but in the following shot, the car moves forward and turns to the right. However, this is not a goof since Martin Scorsese has confirmed that where Jordan has taken drugs the editing becomes odd on purpose, with continuity issues to make events flow oddly. See more »

Alternate Versions

News reports in local media have said the version of Wolf of Wall Street (2013) showing in Abu Dhabi cinemas removes 45 minutes of content. Aside from nudity and sexual situations, most of the edits come from the film's 500+ curse words. Time Out Abu Dhabi reported offensive language was removed by "either by muting the audio temporarily or chopping chunks from scenes mid sentence, which produces a jarring effect for viewers."

Where Human Flaws Make a Rotten Core
17 December 2013 | by Serge_ZehnderSee all my reviews

Brilliantly acted, superbly written and as one would expect from a picture by Martin Scorsese, it is a masterclass of directorial craft.

Showy when it needs to be, but also quiet and contemplative. "The Wolf of Wall Street" is the equivalent of something like "Good Fellas" or even more so "Casino" but set in the world of finance. The suits might be more expensive but the people who wear them are just as sick and violent as their street-mob counterparts. Sardonic in humor and unflinching in showing the depravity of its characters, it marks somewhat of a different approach to the world of stock-trading than Oliver Stone's "Wall Street".

Where Stone seems more in line with Bertold Brecht who considered theater (or in this case film) a moral institution, does Scorsese take the position of the omnipresent observer of the dark side of the American and in many cases the human dream.

Leonard DiCaprio gives another stellar performance of great intensity and even greater tragedy while this tale of corruption, greed and self-righteousness unfolds.

It's a vast panorama that shows how during the last twenty-five to thirty years gullibility as well as our innate greed make all of us accomplices in this never-ending pyramid scheme far away from any reality.

One could almost hear Scorsese's clerical background come to the fore again, according to which nobody is without sin, and therefore we are all susceptible to corruption.

It is our decision on which side we choose to live that makes the difference. For every individual but also society as a whole.
