The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street ★★★★★

The depraved and deplorable aspect of our society is perfectly realised in a way that only the great Martin Scorsese could do. Perhaps this year's worst snub at the Oscars is the lack of a best editing nomination for this. Despite being three hours long it never feels like it, which is a compliment I can give to few films. Leonardo DiCaprio gives what may be the performance of his career leading a great ensemble, which also boasts a hysterical Jonah Hill and a criminally underused Matthew McConaughey. In a year for films as great as 2013, it speaks volumes to the quality of this film that it is the best.
