Director Martin Scorsese shows off a more playful mood with The Wolf of Wall Street, an orgy of excess starring his frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio as an unquenchable, over-the-top stock broker.

Bolstered with impressive performances from Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill, the black comedy based on a true story about a New York trader's spectacular rise and fall is definitely entertaining, says CBC reviewer Eli Glasner.
