Fifth about The Seventh

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

The Wolf of Wall StreetThe Wolf of Wall Street: bold by choosing to be so forthcoming with its excesses; they are, however, either serving the story and the characters or defining the world. This film is an absolutely fun, if flawed, ride (assuming one is able to not be horrified by the excesses); the pace is somewhat uneven, but that’s because most scenes and sequences have such a high degree of energy that whenever one doesn’t reach those levels, it sticks out. Martin Scorsese is in complete control of the cinematic language, from the kinetic editing and cinematography to the inspired music choices. Above all, he gets wonderful comedic performances by Leonardo DiCaprio (who goes above and beyond that to create a great character) and Jonah Hill.
