Wolf of Wall Street re-review

Saw Wolf of Wall Street again, given the number of people who lambasted me for not liking it the first time. I liked it more, though it was more admiration for the bravura film making. Interestingly, I was less enamoured of Jonah Hill's performance, having seen Jared Leto's similarly transformational performance in Dallas Buyer's Club, which felt much more honest than Jonah Hill.

But I still think the film celebrates more than castigates the lead character. Still bothers me. I also felt that it could have been an hour shorter with no loss.
