I apologise for how late this post is, I have had it written for two weeks now, I just haven't managed to transfer it from my notepad onto my blog! By now I'm sure many of have seen this film, but I really wanted to publish this post so hopefully you will still enjoy reading it, even if it is a little outdated.
I want to start by saying that I am a massive fan of Leonardo Dicaprio, I have seen and love almost every film that he has done from Titanic to Blood Diamond to Django, my list is endless! Yet when The Wolf of Wall Street finished I sat in the cinema utterly perplexed.
On the one hand I thought it was bloody brilliant, on the other hand I hated it but one thing for sure, I haven't stopped thinking about it and I need to see it again. Have I lost you yet? Don't worry I will make sense of what I am saying, this film just wasn't what I was expecting. The acting I could say immediately was incredible, Leonardo Dicaprio and Jonah Hill were an impeccable pairing, completely believable in their respective parts and utterly hilarious and don't get me started on my now (obsession) with Margot Robbie, the women is a 'duchess'. Her Brooklyn accent was pitch perfect and lets be honest not many could pull of 'that' scene looking that amazing and still be a firm favourite with women everywhere. How many 22 year olds from soaps like Neighbours make their film debut with Leo and Marty? One, that's how many, it says something about the amazing Margot.
I have to mention Jonah's teeth which almost stole the show, joking aside, Jonah completely made his part his own and he had me in stitches throughout. If you hadn't already guessed, my opinion on this film has gone full circle and I can now honestly say it has been added to, if not topped, my list. I have read a few reviews that have accused the film of portraying Jordan Belfort in too positive a light and making the victims look like helpless saps. I'm not too sure I agree with this as quite frankly I thought Jordan throughout the film was a bit of a t**t! I didn't aspire to his lifestyle nor did I aspire be like him, I simply enjoyed and believed the actors portrayal of a completely ridiculous and unsustainable life. That at the end of the day is how I judge a film, was it enjoyable? Was it acted well? Did it portray what it set out to portray? Yes, yes and yes.
Have you seen this film? What did you think of it? I also wouldn't be surprised if you see a lot of Margot Robbie on here! Please let me know below whether you enjoyed this quick review, I would love to hear what you think!
