The Irishman ★★★★

What a remarkable film. Deeply, darkly funny throughout, with Scorsese's trademark outbursts of violence -- and then it turns into something much sadder and statelier and more human.

Pacino turns in the bravura MVP performance, but De Niro does an amazing job making a remorseless, nearly emotionless cipher of a person into a compelling character to spend 3.5 hours with.

I believe every film studies course that does a Scorsese overview now has its capstone film.
