    considering how good the practical ageing makeup was and the fact that the bulk of scenes with De Niro, Pesci and Pacino were done at their current ages I wish that they had of just used different actors to play the earlier scenes. The cgi cheapens the film I feel. And unlike other timeless classics, Goodfellas, Godfather etc etc the shoddy cgi will leave this piece dated. I wish they would have just kept it all practical as the cgi de-ageing is super distracting in some scenes. Not to mention the over the top contrast applied to De Niro's eyes... Great film, just wish they kept it all old school.

    It's a great movie, thier performances are captivating and you buy into the relationships (didnt feel as long as it was). That said, I think it's a film you can only really watch the once and really enjoy at the same level, where Goodfella's and Casino just keep on giving.

    The more I reflect on this movie (I've seen it three times since it released, plus many watchings of scenes on GRgone) the more it slowly moves itself towards my top twenty films of my life. I'm sixty. I have three "lists" I continually hone: 1) The four Mt. Rushmore Comedians 2) The Greatest "Rock" Bands (inc all genres from heavy metal to southern rock to blues and hard rock to new wave, etc) and 3) Greatest Movies. Among my Top Twenty for movies are the first two Godfathers, Twelve Angry Men, The Spy Who Came in From the Cold, Annie Hall, Taxi Driver, ...fifteen others....The Irishman is getting into rare air now...it's just so masterful in so many ways, all so eloquently expressed here in this video by those responsible for its making.

    I notice people trashing the movie, saying it's an average Scorsese and not as good as Goodfellas or Casino. The truth is that this isn't Goodfellas or Casino. Although Scorsese set an antiquated macho mob world as a palette, he was going for a more poignant testament to an evanescing chapter of the American history, which then slowly transitions into a moody, meditative examination of friendship and betrayal, and ends as an ode to time. It is quietly immersive and gripping. I think it is a masterful piece of filmmaking, which only takes a true master like Scorsese to make. Embrace these movies as you won't be seeing the kind much in the future.

      It should've won best screenplay and supporting actor. Jojo Rabbit and Brad Pitt in Once upon a time... were both fun but largely forgettable. Any other year and I think it wins best film, but Parasite existed, really tough competition to beat.

      Agree. I think, for better or worse, that it's because the Academy (those who vote) is made of a few thousand people, all of whom are just regular Hollywood people of varying degrees, weight, influences, intellects, talents, tastes and etc. They're not specifically a rare coterie of film aficionados and I think a lot of primitive and political and childish prejudices were at play in this not getting any awards such as, "Another gangster film from Scorsese?" "Another DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci thing?" "How DARE he go to Netflix!!!" "I cant believe he shunned us for streaming!" and more.....never mind anything to the contrary...this is why I said primitive, childish and political....after all, this is the Academy that passed on Goodfellas for Dances With Wolves (A beautiful picture to be sure, but Goodfellas was, I believe, more special, and powerful) and then, years later, perhaps realizing their mistake, and thinking Scorsese wouldn't be around forever, gave him best picture for THE DEPARTED! GAG!! I mean...it was mildy entertaining but best picture for The Departed?!?! Please! The Irishman!!! Now THIS is Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, Best Production Design, Best Costume, Best of All. Full stop. As they say in certain parts...."Whadda ya gonna do? It's what it is."

      I watched or read an interview where he explains ge doesn't believe on "director's cuts" as to him once a movie finishes post production and is released to theaters, that's the movie that it will always be. He also mentioned something about it being kind of petty for a director to ask for a director's cut DVD/Blue Ray when they didn't care enough to ask that from the start. And frankly, I think Scorsese is one of the few directors who always makes the movie his own, not caring about numbers and big box offices, just an artistic vision true to himself.
