'The Wolf of Wall Street' (11/15)
Mary Cybulski

No fall film has me salivating more than The Wolf of Wall Street. Who better than Martin Scorsese, the gold standard among working directors, to take on the memoir by stock scammer Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio)? Belfort made a killing in less-literal ways than Scorsese's Goodfellas, but the dangerous allure of amorality is embedded in the script by The Sopranos' Terence Winter. Until conviction for fraud ended Belfort's go-go 1990s party, he happily rode the wave of money, drugs, babes, yachts and Gulfstreams. Sin with a sting in its tail is Scorsese territory for sure. Sign me up.
