The Wolf of Wall Street is three hours of DiCaprio snorting and its as effective as the last 30 minutes of Goodfellas. It's a special something for those with a loose grasp on morality. Scorsese is the only person who can make this film. It's the old mans take on Caligula with his gangster start up spin. But who would've guessed that Jonah Hill would get an Oscar nomination for getting high off Quaaludes? This is effective debauchery and couldn't be more fun- which makes the guilt all the more poignant. Scorsese has been reeling us through the minds of mad men for as long as he's been making movies and Jordan Belfort's mostly successful attempt to rip off the working class is well worth his time and ours. Oddly enough, it's a film that's gotten better each time I've seen it. Most recently I noticed how certain shots of Straton's office make the people look like animals. At one point Jordan even calls them animals while we're seeing from that wide angel perspective. Scorsese always keeps morality on the audiences side. Just like in Casino, Goodfellas, and The Departed, we're getting a sneak preview of how the other side functions.
