The Wolf of Wall Street

The Wolf of Wall Street ★★★★

The 'cerebral palsy phase' sequence in this movie might be one of the funniest things I've seen in a long while. What, so Daniel Day Lewis does it and he gets an Oscar, but DiCaprio throws himself down some stairs, drives a car, and saves Jonah Hill from choking on a slice of ham and he goes home empty handed? Seriously though, pretty solid movie if you're looking to watch a terrible person do progressively terribler things for three hours. There is certainly the danger that some people will look at all this and think, "That's awesome, I wan't to be him." But I say that's the viewer's responsibility to interpret the film right, not the filmmakers'. My only real gripe is that the movie is too long. Most of the time we're just watching a slightly different example of rich person douchebaggary. Just a bit redundant at some point.
