TheJonBass’s review published on Letterboxd:
the first hour i was like “oh man gimme that crazy cgi i’ve been hearing about“ and then i remembered i was watching a masterpiece from a master and loved every minute of it.
pescipacinodeniro all pull career high performances with pacino at FULL pacino and man oh man does... HE DELIVER on the GOODS!
it’s a no frills flick for scorsese. he never shows his hand with a flashy pause or a long shot. it’s all there for you to watch it unfold the way it happened in his mind and it’s a thing of beauty.
it’s the first time i watched a movie and thought (and i think this is something only scorsese can do) “man, i can’t wait to watch *this* scene again!”
