This is a perfect role for [Al] Pacino.

A curious self-homage. [Full review in Spanish]
November 11, 2019
The ol' goodfellas have still got it.
November 11, 2019
Scorsese's film takes Sheeran's account at face value and uses it to create a telling critique of America's slow but ineluctable moral decline.
November 11, 2019
Vitally, it feels like more than just the sum of its excellent parts.
November 11, 2019
If Mean Streets was a firecracker tossed into the audience's lap and Goodfellas was a meteor burning up in its own heat, then The Irishman is a reminder that nothing is as dangerous as a fire you think has gone out.

Since Coppola's "The Godfather," these are the men who have shown us the underbelly of American organized crime. It's good this Hollywood royalty of pretend mobsters exposed it. But this will not happen again. A Hollywood, tour de force, mob swan song.

For all its flash-back/flash-forward tricksiness, The Irishman rarely seems disjointed or thematically fractured.
November 10, 2019
In two distinctly different ways, The Irishman is the culmination of careers defined by crime, and it makes for one of the finest films of the decade.

The meandering pace of what all transpires reverberates with a slender essence no better than a hospice bedtime story.
November 9, 2019
Though this is a lucidly told and often engrossing labyrinth of a tale, it's also a bit hollow at its center.

I was left a little cold, tugged between the chronicle of Hoffa, of the lesser-known Frank Sheeran, of the intersection between them, and the thorny problem of how much of this is even historically accurate. I was never quite certain where to grab hold.
November 9, 2019
A late-career masterwork.
November 8, 2019
Whatever the truth of that, The Irishman is a compelling picture, but not a perfect one. Even at such prodigious length, Scorsese cuts corners.
November 8, 2019
A brand new classic.
November 8, 2019
f there is still any doubt as to Scorsese's artistry, The Irishman will put skeptics to bed. Or six feet under.
November 8, 2019
With this masterpiece, Scorsese shows he's not ready to go gentle into that good night. He proves that this old bull can still rage.
November 8, 2019
Goodfellas by way of Wild Strawberries...
November 8, 2019
It's a treat and a challenge. On the other hand, it turns murdering, cheating, organised criminals into glamorous, commanding figures. Scorsese's masterpiece is the work of an artist at the peak of his power and a glorification of pure evil.
November 8, 2019
Sometimes all the brooding over actors and motifs from past films makes you feel as if Scorsese is engaged in a conscience-stricken meditation on his career. At other times, you wonder what happened to his famed momentum.
