2014 comes new reviews. Since I am now getting paid to do this, it website will be a lot more active. To start off 2014, I am reviewing my favorite movie of 2013: The Wolf of Wall Street. Warning: Don't watch the film with your parents.
The film is about Jordan Belfort, a long island penny stockbroker who served 36 months in prison for defrauding investors in a massive 1990s securities scam blah blah blah. The point is, Jordan steals a lot of money, okay?!
Leonardo DiCarpio is as charismatic as ever amazes me yet again. No scene is boring. Each is interesting in its own way. Yeah, i know. A three hour long movie that manages to keep you awake, I know. Jonah Hill proves that even though he is a comedian, he can act. Like, really act.
Martin Scorsese is one of Hollywood's greats, and his talents seem to improve with age. This film is very well done. Yeah, The "f" word is used over 500 times, and there is a lot of nudity and scenes with men and women naked together in one large group, but it shouldn't turn you away.
Rated R for sequences of strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use, and language throughout, and for some violence.
