Martin Scorsese is always making a surprise to his audience in his every movie that he made, especially this movie too. Back to the year which this movie was aired in cinema, there are so many great movies you can watch. Take examples of 12 Years a Slave and Dallas Buyers Club. Combined with The Wolf of Wall Street, these three films are biography movies. It’s so unusual that people will love this movie, full entertainment, and dramatic scenes. People just looking for movies that offer an action shootouts, non-stop action, exaggerated CGI effects that produce a pretty annoying effect. Importantly, they don’t bring the results that are not in hollow when watching it in the cinema. However, these three films are also very good although I haven’t watched 12 Years a Slave and Dallas Buyers Club at all. Just by reading the references, maybe I can say that both movies are quite interesting to watch and The Wolf of Wall Street is a movie I can tell as the craziest biography movie I ever saw.
“The Wolf of Wall Street,” tells about Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a broker who works for a big company on Wall Street. Jordan had already liked his job and he also worked for someone named Mark Hanna (Matthew McCounaghey). After a long period of work in this company, Wall Street then had to close down. Jordan Belfort eventually worked as a broker who pioneered his career from a small stock company until finally became a success with his friends. The only problem is, FBI suspects his company that runs by Jordan Belfort for doing a lot of illegal acts in his company.
Martin Scorsese is one of the most legendary movie directors in the era of industry film and I’ve also admitted it. The Wolf of Wall Street presents a scene that full of explicit content that’s not be allowed by children. The Wolf of Wall Street can be said to be the insane biopic movie that ever existed because despite this movie is a biography, it’s muffled in such a way with the black comedy element that is so thick and we will be made giggling continuously even though its duration just three hours. Moreover, I also forget that this movie is based on the true story thanks to the black comedy. This movie has a happy impression in every minute although sometimes there is a little mellow dramatic. The opening scene of this movie has also made us laugh because of the madness they do in the office. The explicit content is also not kidding because there are so many sex scenes that look real, there is a sex gay in it, drugs everywhere until the f-words are strewed in each line. I’m actually mistakenly assumed that Goodfellas was a movie with the most f-words ever though directed by Martin Scorsese as well. However, The Wolf of Wall Street is a movie with the most f-words there are about 550 f-words inside. Swearnet: The Movie that can be said as the most f-words ever are 900 words and Fuck is under Swearnet: The Movie is 850 words. The Wolf of Wall Street in ranked third. Crazy, very crazy for a biography movie like this.
Although there are so many f-words that included in each line, this movie is actually very engaging but satirical from certain people either you or me. Jordan Belfort is a broker who cheats his clients. After his success with his company, Jordan Belfort used his money as a nonsense party. Imagine, how can a Jordan Belfort let his employees have sex in his office? Or even use drugs? Maybe if I see, the element is a bit exaggerated in order to get the black comedy still exist. Or I don’t know what life of Jordan Belfort was. For the plot of the story, this movie has a back and forth plot where the opening scene shows Jordan Belfort who introduces himself as a successful person. Then continued his early life before he formed his company, meeting with Danny Porush as Donnie Azoff, until the fall of his company for illegal conduct. With the black comedy element that makes us laugh, this movie is actually impressed with the existence of a psychological element where a person who is very depressed when he finds himself in a situation that he didn’t want it. So basically, maybe this movie will be insinuating some people especially for rich people or so who loves to waste his money. Finally, there is nothing he can trust because the people around him have betrayed him.
Now, let’s talk about the actors who play in this movie. There are Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie, Matthew McConaughey, and Kyle Chandler. For some reason, why this film didn’t get an Oscar award at all? However, I am also grateful that this movie is getting a lot of nominations. Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting can be somewhat showing all his performance here. In fact, I can say that he did it with all the achievements that produced the best results. Leonardo DiCaprio who plays Jordan Belfort seems very charismatic who has two faces. He is wild, crazy, cunning, and also deceptive. Jonah Hill who plays Donnie Azoff also can be fairly mad and full of absurd. His acting is very entertaining to make me laugh even his character at 21 Jump Street cannot be lost from my head that makes it all funnier. Margot Robbie is a very attractive, Matthew McConaughey who has a small but maximized role, and Kyle Chandler is a rather brilliant antagonist.
Overall, you want a movie with a crazy action in it? You can watch this movie but remember that this movie cannot be watched by you who are not yet 18 years old. The amount of explicit content in it frequently makes this movie look crazy in my eyes. Even three hours seemed not satisfied for me. The Wolf of Wall Street is a Martin Scorsese biography movie that also features some of the great actors in it. The element of black comedy and everything seems to be unaware that this is based on the true story.
