Ayo Edebiri’s review published on Letterboxd:
First of all, Delroy Lindo.
This was sprawling and at times hard to swallow and can feel like less of a movie and more of a lesson, but wow if I wasn’t wowed.
Spike Lee is, above all, a black man in his 60’s who is a father and a democrat.
The choices around aging here? The Irishman is shaking.
I genuinely loved the credits.
Marvin Gaye used so wonderfully throughout the movie, though one moment in particular sticks out in my mind.
I cannot wait for Jonathan Majors’ whole career. Literally praying for him to be a good person.
Last of all, Delroy Lindo.
