 13 Movies Like The Wolf Of Wall Street That Are Definitely Worth Watching

Jonah Hill may have started his career with comedic roles in “Superbad,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and “Get Him to the Greek,” but he showed his dramatic range for the first time with “Moneyball.” Hill’s performance in “The Wolf of Wall Street” allowed him to combine both sides of his filmography; Donnie Azoff is an uproariously funny character, but the ramifications of his corrupt behavior are treated very seriously. Hill had a similar role in Todd Phillips’s 2016 film “War Dogs.”

“War Dogs,” a black comedy, has a similar tone to “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and both films are told from the perspective of real criminals. Hill stars as the eccentric arms dealer Efraim Diveroli, who convinces his childhood best friend David Packouz (Miles Teller) to join his operation. Efraim sells ammunition and supplies to the US Army to support the war efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Efraim and David gradually learn that their weapons kill millions. David is shell-shocked and begins to question their actions, but Efraim shows almost no regret and wants to keep lining his pockets.

Like Donnie in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Efraim is an unlikeable character who is nonetheless quite entertaining. Todd Phillips has never been shy about his love of Scorsese, and his depiction of real events is indebted to Scorsese’s style. Phillips doesn’t absolve the characters of their crimes, but seems fascinated by how these seemingly harmless men became so dangerous.
