    Scorsese tempts you with this world, but he gives you little slaps that grow in power as things get more repetitive, empty, violent and absurd. But the ending, quite possibly one of Scorsese's bleakest, tells the truth that no one wants to realize within themselves: people want to be Belfort. Many people. Not even after knowing what he did. Many people want to be him and live his lifestyle. This stance on temptation is classic Scorsese, one of the most religious of filmmakers. 3 years ago

    I found this to be one of the most disappointing movies I've seen in years. The plot is basically non-existent, yet the film is somehow stretched out too an excessive 180 minutes. The sex and drugs are reiterated to the point of cliche, and the acting performances (i.e. DiCaprio's) have, in my opinion, been highly overrated by the public/media.

    The film has its funny moments, but suffers something of an identity crisis in that respect. Is it meant to be an out and out comedy? I saw an interview with DiCaprio where he was reluctant to answer that question affirmatively. Well, whatever Scorsese meant for it, I don't think he pulled it off successfully. The film is crafted like a Goodfellas for the banking industry - with a narrator protagonist, charting his meteoric rise and fall over 2+ hours. But the content just doesn't transpose well. Shame. I reckon it'd make a pretty good book though...
