REALLY??? THIS IS WHAT PASSES AS ART TODAY???
, 20 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Wolf of Wall Street [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Any writer who needs to fill up pages with over five hundred F-Bombs, (what they used to call cursing or swearing or using profanity back in the day when writers didn't need to use such things to get by), is not what I want to use my time watching.
Any actor or actors who needs to fill the screen with their naked body parts to pass it off as some sort of new on the edge acting style or statement is not the actor or the images I want to be poured into my mind via my eyes by way of the big screen.
And any director who needs to constantly shock shock shock one movie after another over substance and interesting narrative is not one I want to waste any more time on - I have already wasted enough time and money on Marty over the years.
Last note: at least when Marty had Bob in his corner the flaws in his direction and narrative could be overlooked because we had an artist who could actually inhabit the role to the point one completely forgot any acting was taking place; with Leo you can see the cogs and wheels creaking and grinding around; one is very much aware that we are watching someone who is "acting" a role instead of inhabiting that role.
No more Marty pictures for me.
Enough profanity is enough profanity already and leaving nothing to my imagination is just too much of an insult to me to have to put up with any more.
I only gave this one star because Amazon will not allow a reviewer to give no stars; but that is my rating, 0/5.
And that is being generous...
