The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
This was the role many were convinced would finally see Leonardo DiCaprio take home the Academy award (he didn’t, he lost to Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyers Club). The story of corruption, drugs and sex, Jordan Belfort defrauded millions from investors and made himself a fortune in the process.
This was the fifth collaboration between DiCaprio and director Martin Scorsese, and the source material came from Belfort himself. The quick paced dark humour keeps things interesting enough that the story manages to hold the viewers attention if the stockbroking world isn’t your thing. It also features the word ‘fuck’ over 500 times.
