Scene Stealer: Drugs are bad, m’kay?
At nearly three minutes in length, Jordan Belfort’s (DiCaprio) narcotic-induced crawl to his car is committed, convincing and confident. What’s more, it has all the time in the world. Although potentially a horrific ordeal on paper, there were tears of laughter in the cinema during this standout scene from The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
How DiCaprio didn’t win an Oscar for this scene alone is one of life’s true mysteries.
The Academy must have been on ludes.
