Wolf Of Wall Street 'Sets F-Bomb Record'

Martin Scorsese's latest film The Wolf Of Wall Street has been branded the most foul-mouthed film of all time.

The movie, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio as amoral stockbroker Jordan Belfort, tops a list of films that feature most uses of the F-word.

The Golden Globe-nominated film has 506 uses of the expletive in 179 minutes, according to Wikipedia's list, which uses several websites that monitor swearing in films.

It knocked Spike Lee's 1999 film Summer Of Sam off the top of the chart for non-documentary films.

The film joins Scorsese's earlier gangster films Casino and Goodfellas in the swearing top 10.

Last month the director warned fans about the language in his latest project during a Q&A at the Marrakech film festival.

He said: "The language is very tough in that film, but not as bad as Wolf Of Wall Street, my new film.

"Much worse, much worse. I mean, they're making money."

The Wolf Of Wall Street has been slammed by some critics for glamorising the worst of Wall Street with its depictions of orgies, drug-taking and lavish spending.

Viewers have been divided on whether Scorsese is satirising or celebrating the main character's outrageous behaviour.

At a screening before the film's release, a female Oscar voter yelled "Shame!" at the 71-year-old, who has been nominated for the Best Director Academy Award seven times.

The real Jordan Belfort defrauded clients of $100m (£61m) but escaped with a 22-month jail sentence after agreeing to testify against his co-conspirators.
