It goes without saying that Tom Cruise is more popular than me. Google him and you get 49,500,000 results. Google me and you get...well, let's skip over that bit. Meanwhile, he has 4.7 million followers on Twitter. I think the last time I checked I had 14 - that's not million.

Martin Scorsese Doesn't Live Here Anymore and More's the Pity

Jason Holmes | Posted 16.05.2014 | UK Entertainment

The question is, where has he gone? These words don't come easy, but Martin Scorsese, at this current juncture in cinematic history, has disappeared. Once a maestro film-maker who advocated anarchy of the soul - see De Niro's Johnny Boy in Mean Streets or Joe Pesci in GoodFellas - Scorsese delighted in holding up a mirror to America's underbelly, and he did so with that most subversive of narrative tools: humour.

Who Was The Wolf of Wall Street, Really? We're Still None The Wiser

Philip Ellis | Posted 25.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
Philip Ellis

'The Wolf of Wall Street' is, by many standards, a good film. Sure, it follows all of the predictable plot beats that any given "money and drugs in the Eighties" flick entails, but it makes up for its lack of narrative surprises with its strong central performances and highly stylised depictions of excess.

The Wolf of Wall Street Review

Mark Varley | Posted 16.03.2014 | UK Entertainment

Excess is the driving force behind Martin Scorsese's energetic, entertaining but ultimately hollow epic. Leonardo Di Caprio bravely gives it his all as the amoral Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort who made a million dollars a week ''selling garbage to garbage men''.

The Repulse of Wall Street

Perhaps I should've seen another film, if I can't stomach what certain grown-ups do for a living. Maybe I'm an idealist, but I can assure you my rose-tinted spectacles came off for two hours. Never has a film captured the disgusting, murky world of banking so vividly.

Here, There, Gone: An Interview With Sir Nicholas Hytner

Nicholas Hytner's Othello was so good I saw it twice. It's not the first time Sir Nick has wowed the critics. And I somehow doubt it will be the last. I perch comfortably outside his office, staring at black-and-white action shots of hit after hit: Adrian Lester in Henry V, Simon Russell Beale in Much Ado About Nothing, James Corden in One Man, Two Guv'nors. If there's such thing as a grammar of theatre, Hytner is fluent in it.

Could 'The Wolf Of Wall Street's' Success Slow the Death of Grown-Up Cinema?

For the past 30-years, studios have been reluctant to throw big money at any kind of subject matter which doesn't involve superheroes, and people slowly walking away from massive explosions. This distrust of audiences' intelligence is of course nonsense.

With the internet threatening to alter the fundamental act of distribution that has laid dormant since the advent of home video, it requires a glance all the way back to the late 1960s to find a time when Hollywood's tried and tested means of dominating the film business was so similarly threatened.

Citizen Ebert

A critic for the Chicago Sun-Times for forty-six years, the Ebert era has bracketed the better half of film history. Unlike the fanatical doctrines of Pauline Kael, the humility of his observations broke through the cultural feudalism of cinema snobbery to land right aboard the brains and the breakfast tables of the American family. With syndication in more than 200 national newspapers, his voice of easy reason trickled from Chicago to Hollywood.
