Like Scarface, this film is destined to be adored by dudebros who miss the point. It has been described as “three hours of debauchery” and while that description is not wrong per se, there is a message about his downfall in there somewhere. Jonah Hill gave another confusingly good performance alongside DiCaprio’s predictably solid one (though the more memorable aspect of his performance mostly involved spasming around drunk and/or in a drug-enduced epilepsy).

I went in expecting an endurance test, but was surprised at how few times I felt it dragging. The acting was just over-the-top enough to emulate the 20′s, yet seemed genuine when needed. Funny, creative and unique.
