TAKY PERRY (10 out of 10 ) This is a superb version of life in the 70s-80s. DiCaprio's characterization is so "right on" that I could see myself in each of his scenes. Having been there and done that, I honestly feel that I could have written the book, too. Other characters were slightly overdone (Jonah Hill's for example). I hada many friends who personified that personality- bullet-proof, overdose-immune and so-on. Overall, this is a "do not miss it" flick and my congrats go to Marty Scorsese.
