The Irishman

The Irishman ★★★★

From minute one, the opening night crowd at The Egyptian wanted to belly laugh, holler, and squeal at anything that even remotely resembled a joke (and even things that didn’t) but I took longer to warm up to this (*also holy shit LA Film Dorks: nothing is THAT funny*). Once Pacino appears and starts strutting around, screaming, and gesticulating wildly this movie exploded for me. A legitimate thrill and the end sequence left me reeling. Felt like a major gut punch in the best way. Also trigger warning SEBASTIAN MANISCALSO APPEARS IN THIS FILM
