Being a streaming release is probably the best way to go for this feature. If it was strictly a theater release, there's no way it would be profitable with that budget and that runtime. But Netflix doesn't release viewership numbers really and seems only interested in Oscar prestige, so if the movie achieves that it's a win for Scorsese.

I wonder if we'll ever get a "Hateful Eight" episodic type release that Tarantino did with Netflix that would add even more footage, but release it as a miniseries
I think the runtime hurts its Oscar chances a lot tbh.
does the adademy not love long epics?

Anyone who says it's too long hasn't read the book and doesn't trust Scorsese and Schoonmaker. The book is incredibly sprawling. We also know there are more than 300 scenes. It makes complete sense and for the Netflix detractors out there, it's clear that no other studio would have allowed him to put out a 175M 210 min long gangster epic. Praise the lord.

And yes, Silence is a masterpiece that is just the right length.
AMEN

Got the book in the mail yesterday. I like the book title so much better (I Heard You Paint Houses).
