Jared Christenson’s review published on Letterboxd:
Whoa. After a career with lots of tough guy hero worship, Scorsese paints a true portrait, one untainted by his juvenile need to be cool. Brutal, stark and frighteningly sad. I went and laid on the floor in my daughter’s room after finishing this, stayed there for a long time while she slept just being thankful for everyone in my life who taught me how to feel.
