DiCaprio has become Scorcese’s new DeNiro, it appears. The Wolf of Wall Street pairs them again, and-given the pedigree-I think it’s safe to say this will factor into the 2014 Oscar race. I know it’s blasphemy for film buffs, but I hated Scorcese’s work until the last few years. I’m the one guy on the planet who hates Raging Bull and Goodfellas. But then, in one year, he did Shutter Island and Hugo and I loved both and now I’m forced to actually reckon with enjoying his films. We’ll see how this one goes when The Wolf of Wall Street opens November 15, 2013.
