Movie: The Wolf of Wall Street

It is a funny story, I must say. It is seldom to see true to life based movies which are not history-related, tragedy-related or specifically war-related. I guess these types of movies make it to winning most Oscars/Golden Globes and high box-office sales. So, it is very refreshing to see a true-story movie with modern sets and actors who are not trying to make you cry for their death or admire their heroism. Well, this [movie] too made me cry but for completely different reason – it made me cry because I was laughing so hard. Leonardo’s  epic and hilarious. At some point, I thought if the scenes are exaggeration because of how good his performance is, but then again, there’s no need to overthink, and just enjoy the almost three-hour long film (that’s a minus for me, some obscene scenes can be taken out and the storyline is still the same). 

The Wolf of Wall Street is a 2013 American biographical dark comedy film directed by Martin Scorsese, based on Jordan Belfort's memoir of the same name. It was released on December 25, 2013. The screenplay was written by Terence Winter, and the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort, a New York stockbroker who runs a firm that engages in securities fraud and corruption on Wall Street in the 1990s.

It may not shown how greatly affected the victims were, but, let's give it to the producers for making a totally exhilarating movie that the audience appreciated. After all, everybody wants a good laugh. So if you haven't watched the film, you better ask some friends and have a night of nothing but outrageous laugh and fun. 

Do ensure to check out the trailer below, and if you are particular about obscenities and violence of a movie, it will probably be useful to check the content advisory in this:link:
