Do you know why this movie was in the top anticipated around the world? Of course, a great bunch, a crazy deuce, a mind-blowing duet is back in business. They reunited in order to once again show how to do ‘this’, how to shoot a quality movie, leaving no questions from the viewer. Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio is a poster that makes you go to the cinema without further ado, because after Isle of the Damned, Aviator, The Departed and Gangs of New York, can you really want to bypass their new creation?
The Wolf of Wall Street is the life story of a criminal whose ambition forces him to plunge into a dirty world ruled by sex, drugs, endless lies and endless debauchery. This story is about ‘white collars’, about people who wear expensive suits and work in their respective offices, but in terms of the development and pace of what is happening, the film will give odds to any gangster story on the shores of the Sicilian island.
We are told about the life of Jordan Belfort, a broker who made a fortune from money laundering and financial fraud, a man who knows how to play high and live to the fullest. Our attention is focused on the ascent to power, on the overwhelming success that blows away the roof of the protagonist. The film is replete with filth, luxury in everything, obsession with material things and characters who want nothing but satisfy their own needs. Sometimes it was difficult to believe that in our licentiousness it was possible to go so far, but in the pursuit of success and money, we observe the fall of the human personality.
Perhaps the most memorable thing about Wall Street was Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting. Everyone is probably already used to the fact that Leo approaches every role with a great deal of responsibility, but here he surpassed himself. He literally felt every note of Belfort’s soul, in all his statements, movements, intonations, there was a complete fusion with the image, an exact hit in the ‘bull’s-eye’. Give him an Oscar, film academics, where is it better?
Despite the timing of the picture, it captures from the first shots and does not let go until the last, no matter how trite and hackneyed it sounds. One gets the impression that one could easily sit out for the next three hours. Scorsese shot many scenes with style, dynamism and fun, causing laughter in the cinema hall, creating a feeling of lightness, airiness. Another director’s masterpiece, this man made ‘candy’ from black comedy. The musical accompaniment is chosen as best as possible, for this it is also bold + in the piggy bank of the creators of the action.
In summary, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ will be nominated for ‘Best Film of the Year’. Martin will be nominated for ‘Best Director of the Year’. And as a prediction, Leo will take the gold statuette for ‘Best Actor of the Year’.
