It's another gangster epic from the master, Martin Scorsese, and among his best. The Irishman is loaded with so many excellent scenes, fuelled by some stellar acting from the cast.
Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Al Pacino do a fantastic job, invigorating their characters in a way that sets them apart from previous roles. De Niro in particular stands out, giving one of his best performances. He fills a quiet character with such depth and subtle emotion that he honestly makes the film for me.
That's not to say the acting is the only great aspect, Martin's directing is as sharp as ever. The three-hours-and-30-minute tale jumps forward and backward in time, never once losing me. It's also a masterclass n the use of music in film, as well as when not to use it.
All these elements come together to create an ultimately poignant life story. It's very long, and very good, so I'd recommend you watch it. This one's definitely a Good.
