Is Martin Scorsese's acclaimed drama The Wolf Of Wall Street available on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime? Following the reviews that greeted his 1973 gangster movie Mean Streets starring Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese would embark on an incredible filmmaking career. His filmography is an embarrassment of riches, with highlights including Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King Of Comedy, The Color Of Money, and Goodfellas.
Martin Scorsese has also directed several notable documentaries, including Century of Cinema, My Voyage To Italy and George Harrison: Living in the Material World. The filmmaker is still going strong into his mid 70's, with his most recent project being The Irishman. This Netflix produced gangster epic stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, and has already been hailed by critics as one of the Scorsese's best works.
He also received acclaim for his 2013 real-life drama The Wolf Of Wall Street. This starred Leonardo DiCaprio as New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort, with the film depicting his corrupt business practices and gleefully hedonistic lifestyle, including drugs and orgies. DiCaprio netted an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his work, and the cast also included Margot Robbie (Birds Of Prey), Jonah Hill, and Matthew McConaughey. For UK fans, the movie is available to stream on Netflix, but sadly for subscribers, it can't currently be found on Netflix, Prime or Hulu.
The Wolf Of Wall Street can be rented or purchased through iTunes, YouTube or Google Play, however. Martin Scorsese landed in the news recently for his comments about comic book movies not being cinema, and are more akin to theme park rides. These statements would prove very controversial, with the filmmaker later penning a New York Times op-ed to further explain his stance. While the topic has certainly inspired lively debate, the director is ultimately more than entitled to his opinion.
Martin Scorsese was also attached to produce Todd Philips' Joker, having previously collaborated with the director on War Dogs. Reports suggest Scorsese was even considering directing the movie at one stage, but he ultimately opted out of becoming involved, feeling the comic book side of the story wasn't for him. With The Irishman being hailed as a masterwork from the veteran director, it will be interesting to see how he follows it up. When other great filmmakers reach Scorsese's age they tend to retire or produce less vibrant work, but he's one director who's never lost his edge, which movies like The Irishman and The Wolf Of Wall Street prove.
