Directed by Martin Scorsese.
Rated 8.2 on IMDB from 849538 votes.
Runtime: 180 min.
DiCaprio in a role that was made for him. The Wolf of Wall Street is a hilarious dramatisation of a crazy chain of events. Its main problem is that it takes too long. Especially the second half of the movie is too long-winded and is not as well dramatised as the storyline permits.
