“Wolf of Wall Street” needs no presentations.
The movie was a huge success and presented a rich, well-known actor line-up. Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Jonah Hill and Jon Bernthal are but a few of the career booming actors in it.
But, the show was stolen by none other than Leonardo DiCaprio, or Jordan Belfort… it’s hard to distinguish between the two, after his awesome performance.
Jordan, I mean Leo, was later nominated for the Academy Awards in the category “Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role”. He fell short of winning but, in my personal opinion, the role of an overachieving drug addict got in the way of his win. I feel like DiCaprio’s performance was very solid and memorable, and definitely proved he could do any part, in any movie and succeed, as the A-Class actor he is…
I’ve seen the “wolf” several times and I highly recommend this movie!
It’s entertainment bliss!
During this movie, Jordan Belfort performs some pretty impressive and motivational speeches.
But enough rambling! Here you can find the Telephone motivational speech delivered at Stratton Oakmont. Enjoy!
Speech Video + Transcript
“See those little black boxes? They are called telephones. I’m gonna let you in on a little secret about these telephones. They’re not gonna dial themselves! Okay? Without you, they’re just worthless hunk of plastic. Like a loaded M16 without a trained Marine to pull the trigger. And in the case of the telephone, it’s up to each and every one of you, my highly trained Strattonites, my killers. My killers who will not take no for an answer! My fucking warriors who’ll not hang up the phone, until their client either buys or fucking dies!
Let me tell you something. There is no nobility in poverty. I’ve been a rich man, and I’ve been a poor man. And I choose rich every fucking time. Cause, At least as a rich man, when I have to face my problems, I show up in the back of a limo wearing a $2000 suit …and $40,000 gold fuckin’ watch!
Now, if anyone here thinks I’m superficial or materialistic. Go get a job at fucking McDonald’s, because that’s where you fucking belong!
But, before you depart this room full of winners, I want you to take a good look at the person next to you, go on. Because sometime in the not-so-distant future, you’re pullin’ up to a red light in your beat-up old fucking Pinto, and that person is gonna pull up right alongside you in a brand new Porsche, with their beautiful wife by his side, whose got big voluptuous tits. And who will you be next to? Some disgusting wilder beast with three days of razor-stubble in a sleeveless moo-moo, crammed in next to you with a carload full of groceries from the fucking Price Club! That’s who you’re gonna be sitting next to.
So, you listen to me and you listen well. Are you behind, on your credit card bills? Good. Pick up the phone and start dialing. Is your landlord ready to evict you? Good. Pick up the phone and start dialing. Does your girlfriend think you’re a fucking loser? Good. Pick up the phone and start dialing! I want you to deal with your problems, by becoming rich! All you have to do today …is pick up that phone, and speak the words that I have taught you. And I’ll make you richer than the most powerful CEO of the United States of fucking America. I want you to go out there, and I want you to RAM Steve Madden stock down your clients’ throats. Till they fucking choke on it till they choke on it and buy 100,000 shares! That’s what I want you to do.
You’ll be ferocious! You’ll be relentless! You’ll be telephone fucking terrorists! Now, let’s knock this Motherfucker out of the park! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH”
(“There are other worthwhile speeches in this movie. I will be posting them later on!)
