The Irishman

The Irishman ★★★★★

Time keeps moving inexorably. These white men in constant pursuit of the upper hand act as though time cannot score them, even as the lines are etched deeper across their faces. For all their moves, all the plays, all that violence, Scorsese paints their lives as grand but inescapable. The gangster life is extremely high risk, yet each one of these men seems to think he’ll be the one to live forever. And each one knows he won’t.
