GRAZIAGRAM: 5 Reasons Why You MUST Watch 'The Wolf of Wall Street' This Weekend

GRAZIAGRAM: 5 Reasons Why You MUST Watch 'The Wolf of Wall Street' This Weekend

[The Wolf of Wall Street]

1. Because it takes excess to a whole new level

It’s a three hour romp of drug taking, orgies, underhand dealings and yachts. You won’t walk out of the cinema the same.

2. Because it’s the role Leo (might) win an Oscar for

After playing a series of iconic characters (J. Edgar Hoover, Gatsby, Howard Hughes), Leo picked up a Golden Globe for playing real life stockbroker Jordan Belfort - and has just been nominated for an Academy Award *crosses fingers*

3. Because Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill

MM is brilliant in the largely improvised scene early on as the embodiment of Jordan’s sleazy future. As for Jonah Hill, he's hilarious as Jordan's sidekick, Donnie. A career best performance we'd say.

4. Because of the great cameos

Not only does Jordan ’the actual Wolf Of Wall Street’ Belfort turn up at the end of the film (not playing himself - that would be confusing). There are also appearances from fellow directors Spike Jonze, Jon Favreau, Rob Reiner and US satirist Fran Lebowitz.

5. Leo’s crazy dance moves

We blame the Quaaludes.
