Chaotic, hilarious, beautiful, disgusting: the most triumphant Scorsese/Di Caprio film – The Wolf of Wall Street – was rightfully discussed anywhere and everywhere early this year.

While the plight of the protagonist is entirely unrelatable to 99% of the film’s audience, the events which occur throughout its three hour running time are so eclectic that virtually anyone can find something to enjoy.

Detail in this film is crafted with pinpoint precision – the mise-en-scène, the script, the performances – everything.

Depicting the high-flying city life in a well-balanced light between the awesome and the tragic, Scorsese confirms here what we all suspect about the darker side of such extravagance – and its relevance to current times is a crucial part of its success. A modern treasure.
