“The Wolf of Wall Street”

David Denby criticized Martin Scorsese’s film for having a “bullying tone” that was “relentless, deafening, deadening, and, finally, unilluminating.” Richard Brody disagreed, praising the film as an “exuberant, hyper-energized riot, ” and analyzed the critical outcry against it. Rachel Syme compared the film’s cynical take on the self-made man to the more hopeful tone of “The Great Gatsby.” (“The film has a black heart where a green light should be.”)
