Atom User Reviews for The Irishman
One of the few that exceeds the tremendous hype.
ANOTHER tremendous story told by an acknowledged master director and cast. superb
Don't let the length scare you away. When it's Scorsese it goes fast.
Scorsese proves he still knows what he’s doing. The cast is all wonderful here and for a 3 and a half hour movie it kept me intrigued almost the entire runtime. If your theater has it it’s a must see in theaters, if it doesn’t then make sure you check it out on NetFlix on the 27th
I was in the movie -I played a Teamster-great cast -great people -Mr Scorsese a legend -fantastic film
You can’t get better then this with a cast that was meant for these roles! The attention to detail that Scorsese brings is pure movie magic!
AMAZING. Cinema at its finest.
Scorsese at his best!
Amazing cast and storytelling, visually rich. Seeing it in a theater made it perfection . Did not disappoint.
Between the burnished sheen of Rodrigo Prieto’s cinematography, a soundtrack full of perfectly chosen period pop music, and countless sharply observed details of place, time, and character, The Irishman establishes a world that, for all its violence and tragedy, is hard to leave behind when the last shot...finally comes.
The Irishman is vintage Scorsese, with an often sinuously moving camera, occasional break-the-fourth-wall monologues, wicked wise-guy humour, and explosions of sudden tenderness and casual violence. And its final half-hour pulls something even deeper from the filmmaker – moments of reflection, twinges of regret, worries about chances thrown away.
Scorsese's choice to make this a standalone feature and not a limited series seems mildly perplexing. Anyone hoping for the propulsive dynamism of, say, Goodfellas or Casino may be disappointed. But The Irishman is also on many levels a beautifully crafted piece of deluxe cinema.
