Quentin Tarantino recently pointed out that with most directors there’s a notable falling off of quality as they get older. That their last three films are often their worst. And it’s true that with most directors that’s the case. Martin Scorsese is currently 71 years old, and is a notable exception. The Wolf of Wall Street is one of his best films. It joins such established masterpieces as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas in the upper echelon of his work, and it’s the best performance that Leonardo DiCaprio has ever given.
