The Irishman ★★★★

Was hoping that on second viewing I would be less bothered by the de-aging; I wasn't quite as much, but still a little. Mainly because de Niro still doesn't look young enough in the early scenes. And because, despite all the work they did on movement, there's still an air of heaviness that comes with the gait of an older person.

Was also hoping that the film wouldn't feel as long this time; but if anything, it dragged in the middle. The last half hour though is brilliant, bringing into focus the situation of a man who has lost his contemporaries through either violent death or illness, and his family through his own actions, leaving him completely alone in the world.

Still think Pesci should get all the awards.
