The day before that I was wed - she went upstairs and she cut her head away. I' amazed!

The movie is about scummy Wall Street businessmen that make a lot of money. Except for the main character, almost everybody else is worthless poo poo. The men aren't interesting or funny or original or important or inspiring or good looking. They are aggressive, uneducated scum who spend most of the time snorting coke, falling over, and yelling YEAAAAH !!! and gently caress! The women, if in a speaking role, are golddiggers and others are prostitutes.

Why do we need three hours of their orgies is beyond me. Who cares about these people? The aunt and the FBI guy are the only potentially interesting characters but they get very little space, I guess because the director needed to spend more time on depicting yet another senseless orgy or yet another detailed depiction of effects of drugs.

This would be 1/5 if it weren't for DiCaprio who gives a captivating performance of the main character. He's energetic and convincing. Too bad his talent is wasted on a character of a money-embezzling, drug-addicted salesman surrounded by human trash.

2/5

It seems that the indulgent assault on your senses was not enough to hammer home the point of film through your incredibly thick skull.

Enjoy the Skeleton Twins or whatever Sundance pablum flops out of the indie sphincter onto VOD this year.

5/5

This movie was an entertaining and funny episode of "rich people behaving badly." The pacing could have been better, so 4/5.

5/5 for the sick burn in the second post of this thread.

Title is a lie, there are no wolves in this movie.

Thoroughly watchable performances by DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. If the movie made a misstep, it might be a little too sympathetic towards the character of Jordan Belmont, who is a gigantic piece of poo poo in every way but god drat DiCaprio sells it. Best to go into this expecting a dark comedy (the movie is plenty funny) than any serious ruminations on money, power, blah blah

4/5
