The Irishman

Clocking in at nearly three-and-a-half hours, the great Martin Scorsese directs Robert De Niro in this epic true crime biography penned by the Oscar-winning writer of Schindler's List. De Niro is digitally de-aged as real-life mob hitman Frank Sheeran, who recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino). Joe Pesci co-stars (in his first role since 2010) along with Oscar winner Anna Paquin, her The Piano co-star Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Jesse Plemons and Bobby Cannavale.

I found myself reluctantly taken by the movie, and the way Scorsese uses it to maybe, just a little bit, atone for some of his own past blitheness about violence.

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.

There's an almost meta-maturity, as if Scorsese is also looking back on his own career, the film leaving us with a haunting reminder not to glamorise violent men and the wreckage they leave behind.

Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman" is a coldly enthralling, long-form knockout - a majestic Mob epic with ice in its veins.

A monument is a complicated thing. This one is big and solid - and also surprisingly, surpassingly delicate.

Martin Scorsese, reunites with his most totemic screen actor to tell a sprawling gangland saga that's by turns flinty, amusing and richly nostalgic.

After a while, you adjust, or rather, you get tired of probing the slightly-off evidence of your eyes and the headache it produces. There's a lot of fun to distract you.
