Black Irish Reviews

December 3, 2007
While the film has many well-observed moments...it ultimately suffers from its relentless piling on of crises.

Black Irish boasts many memorable scenes and fine characterizations but ultimately plays more like a series of snapshots come to life than as an organically satisfying story.

It's too sincere and thoughtful to be immediately dismissed. But it is terribly frustrating viewing: so much time and creative energy spent making a movie that, in one form or another, the audience has already seen.
