The Irishman

The Irishman ★★★★½

god, this movie is just a vacuum of inescapable dread. i know the runtime was a put-off for a lot of people but this wouldn't have the same effect of covering someone's life in a shorter time. this isn't like Goodfellas or the majority of mob movies that are about their "falls". I think what makes this stand out and be so great is that the "fall" is having to grapple with the life you lived waiting for it to end.
