The Wolf of Wall Street

One or two instances of dodgy editing aside, TWOWS is a masterpiece. By refusing to focus on the victims, and re-framing the crime as a kind of working class revenge on a system that typically excludes or exploits them, Scorsese permits us to enjoy every drug-addled excess. Leo 4 Oscar.

This is the End

This-is-the-end

This is the End takes a diamond concept – several of-the-moment stoner-ish actors play themselves as the apocalypse hits – and mauls it to death with uncharismatic performances by somehow unlikable leads, cameos that go nowhere (thanks for stopping by Rihanna) and an extended rape gag that makes you want to die.
