    Frank Sheeran wasn't an Irishman; he was American-born. There's a difference.

    Well maybe he IDENTIFIES as an Irishman, huh? Maybe he was born in the wrong country? Maybe he FEELS he’s an Irishman in the INSIDE?

    Have you ever thought for one single solitary moment, about how HE identifies? Did you?

    Scorsese has an Irish mob infatuation...Gangs of New York, The Departed and now The Irishman, weird since La Cosa Nostra is the GOAT organized crime outfit.

    Will watch it obviously...

    NYFF had a load of screenings + random idiots rating without seeing it.

    The Irishman will release at the beginning of November in cinemas. It comes out 3 weeks later on Netflix.

    Limited. It's not going wide; Netflix made a dog's breakfast out of the talks. If the film hasn't been announced in your area, the first chance you'll have to see it will be on Netflix.

    Who are these people? The Age of Innocence is probably his best; Casino is one of its closest comparisons, and is better; and I'd argue that The Departed is more immersive. I'll concede that it doesn't have the indelible scenes found in Goodfellas, but it's a more mature and refined take on that film.

    Just read the reviews from critics. I've already heard the word "masterpiece" thrown around by many of them.

    I take masterpiece to mean the apogee of something. Is it a masterpiece? Sure. Is it his masterpiece? Nah. That would be The Age of Innocence, or even something like Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
