Well made movie that is a complete waste of time

If I rated this one on how much I liked it, I'd have to give it zero stars. It's a story about a douchebag broker (while personally to me being a broker pretty much makes you a douchebag anyways, so this is just adding a touch of extra sleaziness). So, it's filled with annoying characters that have nothing likeable about themselves .. Actually, there isn't a single person in the entire movie that is a decent human being. And their lives are about as interesting as I imagine an episode of Jersey Shore or Life as a Kardashian to be like (I've never seen either .. so I'm just working on prejudices here). To sum it all up, I found the story completely boring and pointless and I simply don't enjoy wasting my time with obnoxious idiots.
However, the movie is well-made. The actors are fabulous (especially Leonardo DiCaprio), the style felt very vivid 80s yuppie and it's really amazing that a story so pointless can be told so thrillingly. It's still about 1.5 hours too long and even the best ...(more)

It's still about 1.5 hours too long and even the best director must fail with the given script I guess ...
So, 0 stars for the story, 5 stars for the execution ... (less)

Great

This is a great movie, but not necessary one i'll want to see again.
The fact that it's a real (as remembered by our "hero") story, makes it a bit more interesting The journey from the innocent young man in the beginning who says no to a drink at lunch and lookes embarresed when his colleauge says "jerk off" to cocaine and orgies on daily basis is facinating.
Much of the credit to the greatness of the film is due to Leonardo DiCaprios brillint preformance - escesially the "open car door"-scene is fantastic.

good movie with little payoff

Wolf of Wall Street is one of those films that I can agree is a good film, but I didn’t particularly enjoy. Leo DiCaprio as Jordan is at his finest, playing a much darker version of Jay Gatsby. But the sad truth is that after three hours, there was very little actual payoff, and the film ended with a whimper.

Considering Jordan’s evident drug problem, I expected him to overdose and die. Or at least I expected someone to die. But the movie showcased some impressive debauchery, and seemingly bought into the characters’ delusions that they’re invincible. What’s the point of that? Or I thought, maybe Jordan would refuse to give up his friends, and in some small way redeem himself. Nope, no redemption. Jordan clearly didn’t care for anyone or anything except money. So when you have a villain masquerading as the protagonist, you want to either see him suffer or redeemed, and this movie provided neither.

Also, the double standard here regarding nudity is somewhat appalling. Com...(more)

Also, the double standard here regarding nudity is somewhat appalling. Completely naked women prance around the screen for much of the running time, showing off everything they’ve got. I won’t say the nudity is irrelevant (there’s quite a lot in the story about hookers), but it did seem gratuitous after a while. As for guys, only Jordan actually appears on screen naked (even though most of the characters are having sex at any given time), and DiCaprio never goes full-frontal. Moreover, all the male characters are constantly (and sometimes shockingly) degrading to women, yet never get called out on it. This takes place in the 1990s – feminism happened! I refuse to believe that every single female coworker would stand for half the shit Jordan was spouting off.

I will say that the movie does not feel as long as it is, and held an audience captive. And there was a great scene of a totally drugged-out DiCaprio crawling around that had the entire audience in stitches. But I’ve no desire to see this movie again. (less)
