'The Wolf of Wall Street'

3. 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

This three-hour bolt of polarizing brilliance from Martin Scorsese, with a killer script by The Sopranos' Terence Winter, details the true tale of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio flares like a five-alarm fire in full blaze), who lived hoggishly high on securities fraud in the 1990s. Jordan and his co-scumbags (Jonah Hill crushes it as his wingman) numb moral qualms with coke, 'ludes and hookers. Scorsese's high-wire act of bravura filmmaking is a lethally hilarious take on white-collar crime. No one dies, but Wall Street victims will scream bloody murder.
