The Irishman

The Irishman ★★★★

A ruminative and surprisingly introspective film. Director Martin Scorsese looks back at the work that made him a household name by tinkering with the formula, without revising it entirely. 
A near-masterwork if it weren’t for the overindulgence of its running time, and the near-absence of a female point of view (Anna Paquin, who comes the closest to giving a female perspective acts more as a God-like, all-seeing and all-judging entity that serves and reacts to the doings of the lead character).
