The Irishman is evidence of a master at work. Both impeccably acted and beautifully made, it's a film about our own fragile mortality, It's about weighing up everything you've left behind and coming to terms with it. With that, Martin Scorsese should be immensely proud of everything he's left behind in his career so far. Here's hoping we get a few more.
It is somewhat difficult to recommend Madness in the Method to non-fans of Mewes or Kevin Smith's previous work. It has it's moments of hilarity and a handful of amusingly playful scenes, but it's one only for the fans because of it. It lacks anything substantial to invite a casual audience enough to make a great impression
Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is a film made with exceptional craft and a deep sense of passion. It's a surprisingly mournful film one minute and a characteristically silly film the next, juggling a dozen different emotions, subjects, and themes... and almost catching them all.
