Trailer Time: The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

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.

  1. 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!
