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.

The Irishman is a much more deliberate and weighty gangster film - by comparison, Goodfellas is a riot. But it's a vibe that works in its gravitas.

The affecting, ruminative finale and the melancholic last scene leaves a metaphorical door ajar in our hearts, a deep hollow that's hard to fill...

Despite its length, The Irishman is riveting. It confirms Scorsese as one of the great American filmmakers.
November 21, 2019
There are 209 minutes in "The Irishman" and not one of them is wasted.
November 18, 2019
Whether seen on the big screen or a small one, The Irishman is among 2019's best motion pictures and should receive its share of Oscar attention in 2020.

"The Irishman" moves slowly and pensively, invests in the natural rhythm of conversations and stops to smell the roses.

There was a real pleasure in seeing Scorcese... doing this sort of stuff that he became known for and celebrated for.
November 14, 2019
It's the ultimate fusing of Scorsese's two sides... And even though it takes a while to get there, the movie is a masterpiece, one made by a man counting down his own years as if they were rosary beads.
November 14, 2019
"The Irishman" is long, to be sure, but it's never less than compelling - Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci, all in their mid-to-late-70s, are each carrying a lifetime of work, with practiced ease.

"The Irishman" is cinema, of the highest order.
November 13, 2019
Scorsese knows how to wield humor, humanizing details, and digressions to keep the film lively....Of course, it helps to have three of the greatest actors of our time anchoring the proceedings.

It's not going to blast you through the back of the theater... Instead, it's going to engender feelings of sadness and regret amid a renewed appreciation for the director's filmmaking and storytelling prowess.

Scorcese has made a film brimming with quiet power and subtle tension.

For all its flash-back/flash-forward tricksiness, The Irishman rarely seems disjointed or thematically fractured.

A brand new classic.

Goodfellas by way of Wild Strawberries...
November 8, 2019
"The Irishman" isn't a soaring achievement: It's a deliberate, thoughtful and somewhat muted one. No matter where that traveling camera goes, it subverts our expectations at every turn. Which can sometimes feel like a drag, but also exactly right.

This opera seria about decay is handled with utmost brio, vivified by the signature élan of one of American cinema's most enduring big-canvas filmmakers.
