Favourites of audience!
The Wolf of Wall Street
On a daily basis I consume enough drugs to sedate Manhattan, Long Island, and Queens for a month. I take Quaaludes 10-15 times a day for my "back pain", Adderall to stay focused, Xanax to take the edge off, pot to mellow me out, cocaine to wake me back up again, and morphine... Well, because it's awesome. - Jordan Belfort, "The Wolf of Wall Street"
Dir. Martin Scorsese
