    Underappreciated and discussed score. The experimental/noise/drone section ("The Retribution") in the climax post-blood is particularly effective following the tense, chilling, Herrman-inflected classical piece ("The Coronation/The Blood") in the pre-blood lead up.

    To recite the oft-repeated De Palma critique, though: there's one too many endings in this. The house burning and the jesus piece should close the film.

    I resent this movie even suggesting that Kenny G and Enya in the same class as one another.

    This is either a clever take on friendly ET/Close Encounters aliens arriving to Earth and "fixing" the protagonist or a dumb one. The ace in this movie's sleeve is that Kaitlyn Dever's performance is so captivating that, in the moment, the answer to that question isn't important.

    Scorsese's vision, this film's themes, Dicaprio's character and peformance, Hill's character and performance, as well as the rest of the ensemble cast's character and performance, are all no-holds-barred. Scorsese truly went all out and it paid off in a hilarious satire on the reverence of money, drugs, women, and the admiration of a criminal moneymaker. As long as someone is making you rich, why care about his morality (or lack thereof)?

    Banksy's polite way of saying Thierry's art is terrible.
