The Wolf of Wall Street / Reviews

Flicks, Matt Glasby

Flicks, Matt Glasby

Eyebrows were raised when Martin Scorsese's real-life drama was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture, Musical Or Comedy. Although the soundtrack (including covers of Goldfinger and Mrs Robinson) is excellent, and it is Scorsese's funniest film by some distance, Wolf is neither musical nor comedy, more a riotously dayglo Goodfellas.

It is (Scorses's) brashest, most provocative work yet. There is a real verve to Wolf, as if the movie somehow recharged the filmmaker.

It’s like mainlining cinema for three hours, and I wouldn’t have wanted it a minute shorter.

There is no psychological insight, no moral insight, just no insight, full stop.

Baggy plotting may make Wolf a somewhat harder sell to audiences but it's... among the best that Scorsese has made.

Variety

A big, unruly bacchanal of a movie that huffs and puffs and nearly blows its own house down, but holds together by sheer virtue of its furious filmmaking energy and a Leonardo DiCaprio star turn so electric it could wake the dead.

An epic, boldly broad screwball comedy about the state of America, then and now.

Plays modern tragedy as epic farce, reminding us just how much fun Scorsese can be when he's in a playful mood.

Here is a white-collar crime caper that stirs golden memories of the Scorsese back catalogue, often quite knowingly and sometimes to a fault.

The length gives Scorsese, Winter, and their ensemble cast an opportunity to build setpieces of suitable extravagance, true to an antihero who installs a helicopter landing deck on his yacht just because he can.

The wages of greed and excess portrayed in grand, operatic, often very funny style.

Empire Magazine

Scorsese's funniest and most focused film in a long time, a jet-black sex and drug-soaked comedy featuring a bravura performance by Leonardo DiCaprio.
