The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Wolf Of Wall Street”

By Matt Neglia 

Our 2013 retrospective is continuing with our final podcast this month, and it’s a big one! Whenever there’s a discussion about a Martin Scorsese-directed film, it’s a big deal, and his 2013 Best Picture nominee “The Wolf Of Wall Street” has been the subject of much controversy making it one of the master filmmaker’s most divisive films in his illustrious filmography. With a wildly possessed performance from DiCaprio, a surprising turn from Jonah Hill, and a breakout role for Margot Robbie, the film is not short on various talking points ranging from the acting to the direction, screenplay, and editing. What did we think of this three-hour-long film on the meaning of excess and greed? Find out as I’m joined by Ema SasicDan Bayer, and Michael Schwartz. Enjoy! You can also check out our previous 2013 retrospective reviews of “Captain Phillips” & “Philomena” if you have not done so already.
