    The French Dispatch

    ★★★★

    I haven't wrote a review on Letterboxd in almost 7 months now, however I was inspired to write after watching Wes Anderson's 2021 release, The French Dispatch!

    Anderson has never ever been timid in his approach to applying his unique style to his filmmaking.

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    ★★★★½

    More drugs, more money, more sex, more F bombs, more dwarfs. The Wolf of Wall Street is never afraid to keep adding more. 

    Watching Wolf feels like a drug in and of itself. It's intoxicating fun and endless parties provide for one of the most enjoyable viewing experiences out there. Glamorizing the abuse of wealth and power unlike anything before it, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio perfectly capture Jordan Belfort's cocaine and quaalude fueled chaos.
