It didn't take a genius to see that television was finally poised to win the war against movies. I just didn't expect my teacher to be leading the charge against theatrical exhibition.

There are 209 minutes in "The Irishman" and not one of them is wasted.

Whether seen on the big screen or a small one, The Irishman is among 2019's best motion pictures and should receive its share of Oscar attention in 2020.

November 18, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"The Irishman" moves slowly and pensively, invests in the natural rhythm of conversations and stops to smell the roses.

Top Critic

"The Irishman" is long, to be sure, but it's never less than compelling - Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci, all in their mid-to-late-70s, are each carrying a lifetime of work, with practiced ease.
