Excess, success, money, drugs: Leonardo DiCaprio plays corrupt New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorcese’s latest offering – ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.

It is a biographical black comedy – Belfort was indicted in 1998 for securities fraud and money laundering. After cooperating with the FBI, he served 22 months in federal prison for a so-called pump and dump scheme, which resulted in investor losses of approximately $200 million.
