I'm trying to hide the impact it has caused me. It's a monumental work on the decline of the American gangster. [Full review in Spanish]

Despite mediocre visual de-aging effects, and unnecessarily long run time, The Irishman is an impeccable tale of life, regrets, betrayal and friendship. I'd hardly call this a masterpiece for Scorsese but this felt like a film he could do in his sleep.

The very definition of a late-period masterwork, this reckoning with a quarter-century of American corruption and damnation touches upon historical and fanciful milestones as if they were the stations of an inverted cross.

Extraordinarily ambitious, dealing with the biggest questions: death, and the attempt to work it out. To watch this figuring-out is a devastating privilege and the film a monumental artistic achievement.

Surely only a filmmaker with plenty of life behind him - and plenty of such stories - could make a film so entertaining and yet so solemn and sad.

Melancholy and poetic. Think of it as Scorsese's monumental gangster epic equivalent of the late Sergio Leone's nearly four-hour masterpiece of "Once Upon a Time in America" (1984).

Though it was somewhat overrated as a masterpiece of mobster cinema, Martin Scorsese's epic, occasionally funny, word-driven drama about the fate of union master Jimmy Hoffa is still a venerable, highly entertaining work

While it meanders at times, like the stories of many absentminded old men, it's rarely boring. Scorsese's longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker -- a huge influence on the rhythms of his films -- remains a titan.

One of Scorsese's masterworks.

This is a magnificently wise, majestic, top-shelf work about the relentless passage of time and the fate awaiting us all, connected or not.

"The Irishman" is to Martin Scorsese what "Sandinista" was to The Clash, a generous gift of art meant to entertain, inspire, and inform.

Zaillian (and most likely Scorsese, in concert with his abiding editor Thelma Schoonmaker) structures The Irishman along three tracks of time that wind in and out of each other.
February 4, 2020
Epic crime movie filmmaking filled with a surprising reservoir of emotion, and a masterclass of practical and visual craftsmanship.

It didn't take a genius to see that television was finally poised to win the war against movies. I just didn't expect my teacher to be leading the charge against theatrical exhibition.

Maybe somewhere along the way, over the course of careers as long as Frank Sheeran's and longer than I've been alive, these guys have earned their self-indulgence

Every act of violence in The Irishman is mournful, loaded with pathos.

...This is a gargantuan piece of cinema that would be a fitting conclusion to the master filmmaker's career if he was ready to stop here.
January 16, 2020
This movie gave me my most enjoyable three and a half hours by far.
January 15, 2020
This is a well-made movie by a truly great director and the acting is fine, but the story seems kind of pointless. There is a lot of killing, a lot of suffering, and for what? On the other hand, maybe that is the point of it after all.

Joe Pesci, Robert de Niro and Al Pacino... manage to create well-differentiated, memorable characterizations. [Full review in Spanish]
