The Wolf of Wall Street (Martin Scorsese,
2013). All of the Scorsese exuberance and volatility, without the dark underside of guilt and
violence, like a cocaine frat house GoodFellas with Jonah Hill as Joe Pesci. Hedonism is
its own reward. This is also the fullest realisation of the evolving Scorsese/Leonardo
DiCaprio partnership – could any other American actor carry this blend of
comedy and wild thriller as DiCaprio does across three hours, while both trusted and
distrusted by audiences? Scorsese’s most enjoyable film since … well,
GoodFellas. Easily his funniest.
