An epic gangster drama that earns its extended runtime, The Irishman finds Martin Scorsese revisiting familiar themes to poignant, funny, and profound effect.
It didn't take a genius to see that television was finally poised to win the war against movies. I just didn't expect my teacher to be leading the charge against theatrical exhibition.
It's the ultimate fusing of Scorsese's two sides... And even though it takes a while to get there, the movie is a masterpiece, one made by a man counting down his own years as if they were rosary beads.
Whether seen on the big screen or a small one, The Irishman is among 2019's best motion pictures and should receive its share of Oscar attention in 2020.
