The Irishman ★★★

Well, I didn’t love Scorsese’s latest. I know I’m going to get a lot of shit for that, but I just couldn’t get into this overlong and oddly-structured snooze fest. Maybe I set myself up with too high of expectations, seeing as everyone has been raving about this film ever since it’s premiere at NYFF. While it boasts great performances across the board and a final half hour that’s peak Scorsese, I was mostly left unimpressed. With laughably bad de-aging effects that undercut tension within scenes, and a mostly tedious narrative; The Irishman is easily the biggest disappointment of the year for me. I’m absolutely crushed.
