    Scorsese can make disgusting 1970’s New York look like something dreamy and beautiful. This movie is so haunting and the score is fantastic. I watched this in high school and didn’t really like it, but I realize now that I really didn’t understand it. Travis Bickle is an archetype for all disaffected young men, and it’s painful to watch his transformation into a “hero” of his own making. DeNiro is fantastic.

    Ah, well now I see where every Looney Tunes and Simpsons gag came from.

    I never once looked at the running time, and at 3 hours and 20 minutes, that means something is going right. The Irishman is told in the same structure as Goodfellas, but in a much less bombastic way. De Niro is fantastic as a mob enforcer caught between two loyalties. Marty has made 5+ mob movies at this point and I could continue to watch more. Bravo to cinema!

    The de-aging technology was distracting at first but I got used…

    Every night I ask my wife if she will watch this movie with me and every night she tells me that it’s weird to want to watch this movie so often. 

    She still thinks I’m weird but she at least acknowledged that it’s great.
