The last few Scorsese pics left me a little disappointed. I had begun
to think Marty had become a 'gun for hire' and that his brilliance may
have been spent (his earlier works were some of the best movies ever
made). I attended a screening of The Wolf of Wall Street this evening,
and was expecting to be unimpressed. I am happy to say I was completely
blown away. This pic is Marty at his best. I laughed, I cringed, I
related (with fond memories as well as a bit of guilt) and I TOTALLY
believed every unbelievable moment. A good book, a great screenplay and
a delightful cast were formed and molded into what I believe should get
Scorsese a best director Oscar, and likely a Best Picture Award for the
movie. Leo DiCaprio has grown into a versatile actor and his creation
of this super hero dirtbag's roller coaster ride in this crazy (true)
story is really honest and delightfully entertaining. Jonah Hill pulled
out all the stops too and this is definitely his best work. Thank you
Mr. Scorsese for delivering the goods so brilliantly!
