The Irishman ★★★★

Martin Scorsese still has fascinating mob tales to tell and fascinating ways to tell them. In many ways, 'The Irishman' plays like a greatest hits album for Scorsese, a revisiting of all of his famous moments and characters, but then there are true moments of fresh, authentic rediscovery along the way. At three-and-a-half-hour, 'The Irishman' is long, to be sure, but it’s never less than compelling with Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci are each carrying a lifetime of work, with practiced ease.

An ambitious gangster epic masterfully unfolds.
