Remember another demographic is made up of young Americans two generations of whom dont even know who Jimmy Hoffa was.
I knew very little about Jimmy Hoffa prior to seeing The Irishman. Afterwards? Jimmy Hoffa must have been a bloody idiot. He could had so many chances to save his scrawny ass. Kind of playing with fire but dumping 10 truckloads of dynamite on a bonfire while he was 5 feet away from whole thing.
What were we supposed to learn from The Irishman? It's a film that could have had 30+ minutes shaved off of it. Great acting and script. Not so sure it needs to be seen at the movie theater. I rated it an 8/10.
