The best thing about my experience with ‘The Irishman’ was the empathy I felt after the film. Scorsese’s films are mostly about bad people. His characters are anti-heroes, who despite their evil actions, Scorsese finds an angle in making the audience feel for them all sorts of emotions ranging throughout his finest works. Frank Sheeran is easily one of Scorsese’s evilest, most disturbed characters. Though the film’s perspective doesn’t paint him to be this way because Sheeran is telling his own story. Yet, after the film I felt for him despite everything I just witnessed and with it’s own significance too. Separating itself from Scorsese’s other works enough to justify its existence and thankfully so. It’s such a lovely return to the vivid and gritty world of the Italian mob with a big story to tell. Created by the man who revolutionized the mobster genre. Highlighting superb performances from De Niro, Pesci, and Al Pacino.
