Quick Verdict – The King of Wall Street


Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a stockbroker.

It never ceases to amaze me how Martin Scorsese makes it look so easy. This is such a joy to watch, with all of Martin Scorsese’s trademark moments. We have talking at the camera, panning crowd shots and  epic storytelling.

Now for a film that was shunned by the Oscar jury because of it’s excessive swearing, nudity and drug taking, I was keen to get my eyes on it. And I have to say, I don’t know what the big deal was. I didn’t find myself watching it going ‘do you know what, there is no reason why that naked woman should be taking drugs and telling Leo to fuck off.’

It was a hoot. Half way through so much has happened and there is still so much to come. Is it too long? Telling that much story, I think they did a great job fitting it all into 3 hours. For me, it doesn’t drag, it keeps me entertained through out and I could happily watch it again and again.

Now don’t get me started on why Leo didn’t get an Oscar.
