I remember vividly, being five or maybe six years old, my mum and dad got a video out (standard Friday night)… Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci are driving at night when they hear a banging from the trunk of the car, they pull over, open it up, a half beaten to death man is in the trunk… And they finish him off by stabbing him to death.
Welcome to the world of Martin Scorsese! 😆
Yeah I just watched The Irishman… in one sitting. I think most movies should be three half hours long.. put some fucking talent, thought and effort into it! (Or don’t bother at all)
One thing I would say is, why use aged actors when you have Di Caprio, Hardy, Damon, Wahlberg, Norton? 🤔
Still, it’s one the greatest gangster films I think has ever been made. I feel privileged to have been a part of Scorsese’s career (going back and watching Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull), being alive to to see Casino, Wolf Of Wall Street (I FUCKING ALMOST DIED CRYING WITH LAUGHTER AT THAT ONE! 😅😂🤣)… The Departed!
Privileged to have been a Scorsese fan! 😢
Joe Pesci in Goodfellas (and my dad) was the first person to teach me… some people are just way to fucking crazy to even deal with, cannot be around them, cannot reason with them, their fucking live grenades… either stay as far away as possible from them… Or kill them.
(Once you’ve let someone like that into your life)
