“I wanted to do a film that, to me, was a depiction of the times we live in. Jordan Belfort was somebody that I was obsessed with playing since 2008, watching the destruction of our economy. He’s not the problem, but he represents something within our very nature and our society that’s very wrong… It was a fun process because there really was no limit to what we could do because Jordan’s biography depicted stuff we could never have imagined.”
—Leonardo DiCaprio forThe Wolf of Wall Street
See this movie. DiCaprio succinctly sums it up. It’s a wild ride.
