Movie Review: The Wolf of Wall Street

Sure, I groaned a bit at the film's lengthy run time, but The Wolf of Wall Street was just wickedly entertaining. The film simply didn't hold back on the extravagance that surrounded its main character from the gratuitous sex to drugs, and alcohol, and yet maintained a storytelling that was decently paced. The editing could've been a bit sharper, but I digress. The direction by Martin Scorsese was masterful, the cinematography was great, and the screenplay was actually quite brilliant. The casting was also pretty fantastic, but it was Leonardo Di Caprio's effortlessly stellar performance that brought the film into a whole another level. The Wolf of Wall Street was both outrageous and clever, but if you're one of those people who are easily offended by raunchy contents and vulgar language, this is not for you. I guess, your like or dislike for this film may very well depend on how well you respond to that fact. 8.5
