    Watch: 3-Minute 'Scorsese's New York,' A Visual Love Letter To The Director & City

    While "The Wolf Of Wall Street" does indeed find Martin Scorsese once again telling a story in the city he's long been associated with—New York City—given that it takes place mostly in offices, mansions and yachts, we wouldn't necessarily call it a quintessential NYC movie by the director.

    Watch: Impressive VFX Reel For ‘Wolf Of Wall Street’, UAE Cinemagoers In Uproar As 45 Minutes Cut From Film

    While they undoubtedly exist in the film, walking out of Martin Scorsese's “The Wolf of Wall Street” you'd swear a static, locked-down shot was absent from its three-hour entirety.
