[Quotes] The Wolf Of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street was directed by Martin Scorsese, based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio),from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government. He served 22 months in prison for defrauding investors in a massive 1990s securities scam that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world. The film received mostly positive reviews from critics, with praise for Scorsese’s direction, the comedic performance of DiCaprio and the fast-paced and consistent humor.
