This was incredible, and for me personally, a necessary corrective to Goodfellas. I have been kind of lukewarm on Scorsese in general but I think The Irishman caps off what I would consider his strongest decade - so far.
You have been lukewarm on one of the greatest directors of all-time?
some directors and they're styles just don't do it for everyone. there are a couple members here i know (me being one of them) that don't *love* much of Scorsese's work despite recognizing him as one of the greatest of all time

this is probably the best movie he's done since Taxi Driver or Raging Bull, in my opinion

I'm in the camp that Marty has had at least one absolute stone cold masterpiece per decade.

He's had two in this decade tho so... pretty good form for an old-timer

The Irishman is the best film I've seen this year. But at the same time, this is kind of amazing to me---some random guy used free software and made the deaging look arguably better than the millions of dollars Netflix spent.
