Fairly rote horror thriller that has about two things that make it standout from the rest: the attempted illusion that it takes place in a single take (it doesn't) and the performance by Elizabeth Olsen (the previously forgotten but only truly talented Olsen Sibling). The hook of the "continuous" take is more distracting than effective, but Olsen holds the screen with aplomb (she's certainly given far more to do here than in the recent Godzilla remake) but ultimately it's all for not as the narrative spirals to a lackluster conclusion that is fairly obvious from the get-go.
Blistering satire of not just Wall Street but, really, capitalism as a whole. Credit to Scorsese for creating an almost 3hr film that never feels like it's dragging; this is some frenetic film-making from a septuagenarian. Enhanced greatly with a go-for-broke performance by DiCaprio (and most of the cast, really). It's a tricky feat that, as almost every character is an obnoxious waste of human life. Some accuse it of glorifying excess, but you have to be pretty blind not to see that the film is mocking that very excess it appears to revel in. You need a strong stomach, but it's worth the ride.
Fun look into a very niche environment. Succumbs to some contrivances and other indie cliches, but that never becomes too distracting, thanks in large part to a game cast, filled with comedy ringers (Corddry, Offerman, Martin, Marino) and a great lead performance from Lake Bell. Unique and fun.
For all the original's faults (and lo, they are legion) it could always fall back on its visuals; it was surreal and effective enough to work as something of a beautiful, yet unnerving, nightmare. Revelation is not so lucky; containing all the nonsensical exposition and none of the artistic verve (save the occasional flourish). Also, the less said about every performance, the better; though Clemens is just plucky enough to make you care...if you can get past her distracting resemblance to Michelle Williams.
