Scorsese’s ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Gets In Under the Oscar Wire

LOS ANGELES — Last week, Martin Scorsese winged off to Marrakesh, Morocco, where he will spend nine days adjudicating Prince Moulay Rachid’s film festival.

But he left a not-so-little something behind: “The Wolf of Wall Street,” a two-hour, 59-minute cinematic romp through the securities business — his longest film ever.

From Academy Award winning director Martin Scorsese comes The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Looks like a “MUST SEE” to me.

“Completed just last Wednesday and shown at two sneak-peek guild screenings on Saturday, “The Wolf of Wall Street” is the last, and possibly weirdest, of the Oscar season movies to surface, creating a type of parlor game for the gossipy movie industry. Daring to be both late and long is rare brinkmanship in a Hollywood that has become more accustomed to corporate discipline.

Will the picture, now scheduled for release on Christmas Day, do for crooked stock traders what Mr. Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” did for the mob? Or might it find Paramount executives on the next plane to Morocco, looking for a filmmaker who dropped a problem in their laps?”  Read more on The New York Times HERE.
