February 21, 2018
The result is a superb performance from DiCaprio as the swaggering, shouting bastard, and probably Scorsese's best film in 15 years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Scorsese's art continues in dazzling form. May it last us a long time. [Full review in Spanish]
December 13, 2017
Scorsese illuminates the best and the worst of the human race... [Full review in Spanish]
November 17, 2017
DiCaprio runs away with Jordan, magnetic as he trains his pack to hunt, brutally funny when high on drugs, he crawls to his low-slung Ferrari.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
October 17, 2017
While Scorsese's latest resembles After Hours in its absurdist tone and progressively exhausting succession of wild occurrences, it's GoodFellas that is clearly Wolf's closest cousin in the director's oeuvre.
September 6, 2017
The film has roused censure for glorifying crime, with scant, awkwardly realised minutes paid to Belfort's eventual comeuppance. But surely 71-year-old Scorsese, a one-time wannabe priest whose work is preoccupied with morality, did that deliberately?

August 17, 2017
In a year of breathtaking sexism, here is a big three-hour helping of more of the same.
June 26, 2017
It is a good movie but it's also polarizing. A viewer is either going to love it or hate it. The reason being not because the film itself is bad - it's an A+ effort on all fronts - but because the story is repulsive.
July 14, 2016
If one watches this film and thinks Scorsese has crafted it to exculpate rather than expose the behavior of Jordan Belfort ... well, one has rather missed the point.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 21, 2016
How half-brained masculine and economic mentalities are channeled to a mutual, logical, terrible climax in one of the year's more terrifying final shots is what's truly essential.

June 18, 2016
Scorsese is fascinated by procedure, by drawing back the curtain and showing us how things happen, though he keeps the picture nimble and entertaining enough to avoid burying himself in the minutiae.
May 10, 2016
DiCaprio makes Belfort a childish charmer, sleazy and arrogant.
April 17, 2016
Leonardo DiCaprio is a nuclear bomb as Belfort, the actor basking in the ridiculousness of his surroundings and eclipsing them at every turn.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 13, 2016
[Belfort is] in the wrong. That's for sure. But to walk away and not realize we're at least a little complicit, too, would be foolhardy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 12, 2016
The Wolf of Wall Street may implicitly feign moral indignation, but it also suffers from its own Belfortian tunnel vision.
July 14, 2015
It may be the most exuberant film about sin ever made.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
May 5, 2015
A marathon of depravity. The relentless vulgarity feels heroic.
April 23, 2015
DiCaprio's powerhouse performance, and Scorsese's brilliantly energetic direction make this a must watch for film lovers.
Full Review | Original Score: A
November 7, 2014
A terrific watch, and bound to be one of the funniest films of the year, but perhaps a tad indulgent and lacking the emotional resonance that could've escalated it to truly unmissable status.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 10, 2014
A forgiving nature and lots of stamina is needed for this no-holds-barred hedonistic ride into the Roman orgy-style excesses of the 1990s' financial world
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
