gives an extraordinary performance in Martin Scorseses latest film
playing greedy, mostly intoxicated, morally and financially corrupt banker Jordan Belfort (a real-life Wall Street crook).
Despite being an utterly flawed and objectively villainous character, DiCaprio
convincingly portrays a man whose power and charisma seduces enough people to afford him years indulging his obsessions with money making, drug taking and womanising.
The film is an entertaining romp through the highs and lows of his Wall Street career, if a little repetitive in places (it is nearly three hours long).
Jonah Hill is on brilliant form as Belforts right hand man Donnie (his phosphorescent teeth are particularly diverting) and Hollywood newcomer Margot Robbie is fierce and fittingly glamorous as Belforts wife Naomi.
