     I know, a little bit late on this one, but what a film this is going to be. The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring, in their fifth collaboration, Leonardo DiCaprio, tells the cinematic true story of Jordan Belfort, a wealthy, big wig stockbroker in his mid-to-late twenties, and his ultimate demise and fall into crime, corruption and the loss of his multimillionaire status. The trailer is fast paced and definitely has that connection with Scorsese's gangster masterpiece Goodfellas. The Kanye West song fits perfectly as well. Hopes are extremely high and I am usually rarely disappointed with Mr. Scorsese. He is one of the greatest individuals, not only as a filmmaker, but more importantly as a preserver of classic film from the United States and around the world. He is a true educator on the history of film. The Wolf of Wall Street is based on Belfort's autobiography on the events of his rise and fall. The screenplay was written by Terrence Winter, creator, writer and executive producer of the HBO series Boardwalk Empire and writer and executive producer of The Sopranos. The cast is led by DiCaprio and includes Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Spike Jonze, Jon Favreau, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, Shea Whigham and Rob Reiner. Is this the movie that gets DiCaprio his Oscar? Enjoy.
