I'm really jealous of Kurt Russel's beard in this movie
Think I refused to watch The Irishman until yesterday because I've read so many titles that say this is the perfect funeral for the gangster movie genre. And damn, they're perfectly right.
Crime, mafia films. Specially the one's written and directed by Martin Scorsese are the ones that got me into loving movies in the first place. It's sad to think that this could probably be the last big film of that genre for some time. When I finished the movie, I felt sad. Nostalgic, I guess...
I'm still trying to figure out why...
I really think this is the best Gaspar Noé movie. A shame that a lot of people didn’t pay attention to his movies after Irreversible. This movie is one of the greatest and in more than one way. The narrative, the feeling of being “On the void” the entire movie, the color palettes and the cinematography. I thin it’s an ambicious movie but one that completely delivers. The soundtrack it’s also amazing.
