The Irishman ★★★★

Good in all the expected ways: great dialogue, great performances, great cinematography, a well-made movie that feels familiar but not repetitive.

But also not so good in all the expected ways: virtually no non-white characters, women take a (literal) backseat and are mostly there as props, honestly 3.5 hours feels like a little much.

Overall, glad I watched it but I do wish Scorcese would tell some stories that *aren't* just about white dudes. 🤷‍♀️
