The memorable chest thumping/chanting scene with Matthew McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street was actually based on McConaughey’s own real life pre-filming ritual. McConaughey recalls, in an interview with Rolling Stone:"That’s one of my rituals that I do before filming. It’s a humming meditation, and when I was in the middle of it, Leo interrupted and said, ‘What is that you’re doing?’ I told him I was just preparing for the scene and immediately he was like, ‘You have to do that in the scene!’ So I said all right. Little did I know that when I saw the final cut and it actually became the baseline for our story" (x).
The Wolf of Wall Street- Martin Scorsese - Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Margot Robbie
Having finally watched “The Wolf of Wall Street” I thought I’d rank all the movies I have seen by my favorite director.
That isn’t to say any of those movies are bad, in fact I have not seen a movie directed by Scorsese that I didn’t enjoy.
