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.

@farmerman,
Don't get me started about how many people think the 'iron curtain' is something the dentist throws over your torso when they X-ray your teeth. ((I know it's lead.......that's another sore point))

Just finished watching Yesterday, about the Beatles and their songs disappearing from the world save in the mind of one obscure musician (and a couple of Boomer fans) who chooses his girlfriend over fame and fortune through plagiarism of the songs. The personal sub-theme with the girlfriend was weak and unconvincing. The larger Beatles songs theme made up for that weakness.

In my odd form of preparing for this, I watched Mean Streets (1973) which was Scorsese directed and contained Keitel, DeNiro. Figure to see The Irishman within the week.
