Did NOT enjoy it this time, really, aside from the scenes with Darth Vader in it.
“What if people think it’s too nostalgic?”
Well at the end of 2016 and almost losing my faith in cinema as a whole after such a BORING year for movies… my faith is restored. Turns out you CAN still make a movie where people give a shit what happens.
Damien Chazelle is quickly becoming my favorite filmmaker of this century if he manages to keep THIS kind of streak going. He made Whiplash in 2014 which is…
The Wolf of Wall Street. I'm really kinda speechless after watching this movie. I mean.... this movie is @#$%ing INSANE! I don't just mean that in a quality sense.
I mean this is one of the craziest, wackiest movies I've seen in a long time!
What I will say is,
This film.... is the Scorsese film I was waiting for after seeing The Departed.
I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…
8 year old me: "This is the single greatest..."
23 year old me: "...piece of shit! What's with the teddy bears?"
There's a LOT to like in this film. But there's more to hate.
