Reports coming back from Martin Scorsese‘s “Wolf of Wall Street” starring Leonardo DiCaprio have nothing to do with the length of the movie (three hours). But there are some other lengths that people may be comparing. One of them is said to be a thick dripping red candle inserted into the “Titantic” star’s derriere by a dominatrix.
Apparently, she waxes, while he wanes.
Another is a question of whether Jonah Hill goes full “Wahlberg” or if a prosthetic is involved in another scene in which Hill has a public moment of exposure.
The DiCaprio candle scene, one spy said, reminded viewers of Madonna’s wax dripping scene from “Body of Evidence.”
“All the actors have a lot of skin in this game,” reports one spy.
All of this is based on the true life recollections of not-imprisoned-long enough Wall Street Jordan Belfort, who apparently has his own Hitchcock like scene in “Wolf.” Some other cameos are said to include curmudgeonly writer Fran Lebowitz, who was once the subject of a Scorsese documentary. A few people have pointed out that shoe tycoon Steve Madden is played by Jake Hoffman, Dustin Hoffman’s talented actor son.
But back to the sex. “Wolf” is said to be the sex equivalent of the violence from “GoodFellas.” There are said to be orgies on planes, in living rooms, just about everywhere. The only person who isn’t naked is Matthew McConaughey, who I’m told does give a sublime performance in one scene–just as I thought from the original trailer. He could wind up competing against his “Dallas Buyers Club” co-star Jared Leto in Best Supporting Actor.
So far, “Wolf” has been overlooked by the New York Film Critics Circle. But as critics groups roll out their awards, the Scorsese film– which sounds like a crowd pleaser– is undoubtedly going to turn up on many top 10 lists including the Academy Awards.
