It's great. Schrader did the screenplay. Feels like a precursor to what the Safdies are doing. You've got Cage, Sizemore and Ving Rhames tearing round NYC in an ambulance, bumping into all manner of weirdos, seeing ghosts, bringing people back from the dead.The only Scorsese I think I've not seen is "Bringing out the dead", anyone care to comment on that?
I liked the Irishman more than Goodfellas or Casino. A much more human perspective. The first few acts were meh but then the final act comes and it's fantastic and it gives new meaning to the rest of the film. Which was very good, because that's what's the film is about. How the meaning of your life changes when you're looking back on it, nearing the end. I really felt it and was thinking about it at work all day yesterday. It's a bit of a shame that the Hoffa drama drags out too much, because when the good part starts, you're very ready for the film to end.
