Movie of the Year: 2019

The Irishman

The Irishman is this week’s 2019 movie. Yes, it’s long. Yes, the actors move like old men yet have computer-smooth faces rendered uncannily young–and some have of the colorless eyes of a wight. And, yes, the women characters share a handful of lines at most. But does the movie find a way to overcome all of these things? And is it a fresh take or a rehash of former glories. Is it OK to wear shorts to a meeting? (This last one is important and I need a quick answer.) All this, and likely more, is answered on this week’s Movie of the Year!
