The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street ★★★½

I didn't really feel like WoWS encouraged extremes, but I also understand how some people saw it like that; It was an extravagant fest of nudity and drugs and... everything really. But I did feel that it went on for a little more than it needed to.
Leonardo DiCaprio is due for an Oscar, he's been ever since the Departed (IMHO). Here he plays a manipulative greedy SOB, and goes absolutely bonkers doing that; and though I didn't like his character (did anyone?), I couldn't help but admire his sincere efforts. Jonah Hill was good too, but Chandler was wasted playing a character that wasn't explored enough.
