The Wolf of Wall Street Review

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site: Masand’s Verdict ( CNN IBN)

The Wolf of Wall Street is consistently engaging, but is it meant to celebrate this reckless pursuit of wealth, or serve as a cautionary tale against it? That’s for each one of us to decide. To give credit to Scorsese, he’s made a film that works on more than one level, and a film that inspires debate. I’m going with four out of five for The Wolf of Wall Street. In their fifth collaboration, Scorsese and DiCaprio once again do their best work together.

Straight up, The Wolf of Wall Street (TWOWS) is one of the most amusing and appalling films around. Martin Scorsese paints a compelling portrait of Wall Street, that metaphor for American ability and greed, sending your head spinning with its ferocity. Leonardo DiCaprio stands foreground, delivering fresh-faced-with-wicked-eyes with the kick of a cocktail. DiCaprio excels as Jordan, a middle-class boy dreaming dollar signs, landing on Wall Street. Note: You may not like this movie if you don’t like films with swearing and s**.

Despite the length, the first half is racy and fast enough to keep you hooked from the very first frame. The writing is smart and dialogues are laced with wit and sarcasm. The humour is over the top with s**ual innuendoes flung across the room at every given chance. Watch it for the deadly Scorsese-Leonardo combination that creates magic each time these two team up. The Wolf of Wall Street is a good three hours spent at the theatre.

If The Wolf of Wall Street were a person, I probably wouldn’t turn around to give them a second look. It is rather shocking and extremely heartbreaking to see this coming from a director I admire so much. My only solace while enduring this film was the foot-tap-worthy background score.It looks good and it sounds good too — The Wolf of Wall Street can really please the senses, it seems. Just remember to forget your humanity for a while.

The Wolf of Wall Street will do two things to you: 1) It makes you laugh till your sides hurt, and 2) It makes you take a shower asap. Because it’s a rare movie that makes you laugh and makes you feel guilty for laughing. Debauchery has never been captured so sharply on screen, and The Wolf of Wall Street is a three hour long drunk story, cautionary tale and horror movie rolled into one. It’s spectacular. It’s repulsive. It’s the Goodfellas of modern day gangsters (investment bankers) and it’s Scorsese’s best since The Departed.

It’s a zeitgeist film, of course, given all that has happened on Wall Street and the rest of the world in recent times, but it’s also a study of addiction, to money, drugs, s** and the kind of outré hedonism that now seems outright obscene. Scorsese’s real interest seems to be in creating a world in which nihilism rules, fun is experienced in capital letters (one character nostalgically evokes the sixties) and drugs are the key to life. The 176-minute movie is as self-contained and insular as the book that inspired it.

The Wolf of Wall Street is enormously entertaining at times and on the whole, it doesn’t struggle to hold your attention although after a point, the drug use loses its edge of deviant thrill and starts feeling repetitive. If you’re appalled by the vacuousness and superficiality of Belfort’s world, then perhaps you’re seeing the ambiguities that one would expect of a Scorcese film. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to figure out whether we’re imagining them or if they’re actually there.

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Shadab Hasnan Site:Bookmyshow

For now, the results don’t seem as accomplished as they were aimed to be. Frequently brimming with black humor, the film does tend to bore at times for two reasons; first is the length of the movie which is close to three hours (still debatable) and secondly, because of the singular path of self gratification Jordan follows in the film. The background score is brilliant, and it selectively does justice to the movie. Still, The Wolf of Wall Street is a whole-hearted attempt which loses the energy and purpose at times, but finally manages to hold itself together.
