The Wolf of Wall Street ★★★★★

With The Wolf Of Wall Street Martin Scorsese brings one of his most versatile films from a catalogue of classics, In his scathing criticism of capitalism Scorsese spends his time both basking in the it’s glory and denouncing its ethical reasoning. The contrast between the hilarity of some scenes and the gut punching reality of others is shocking in it’s portrayal of greed and abuse of power. Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio both give career best performances in this film by blasting through the utter star power that this ensemble cast brings. The cinematography is, for lack of better description, perfect. Every camera movement is perfectly choreographed and it makes for a visually stunning experience. One of the biggest compliments I can give to this film is that despite its 3 hour run time it feels like less than an hour. I believe that this is one of Scorsese’s best and will go down as a classic with future generations.
