Film Twitter's needs have rarely been met so quickly by technology. Martin Scorsese and Netflix brought The Irishman from select cities and to the Internet, where eager movie buffs waited to embrace the 3.5-hour epic and start recording screencaps.
The film, which has 94 points in Metacritic, 96% in Rotten Tomatoes and received acclaim from V.F's Richard Lawson, would be a hit among those who take film art seriously. It seems that Internet surfers are also getting interested. Scorsese, 77, no play on social media from Time for Time therefore, it is not out of the realm of possibility for him to see some of these jokes.
The first wave of zings has included some mild criticism in Scorsese, who is part of an old auteurist guard who naturally prefers his films to be seen in a grand movie palace but understands the economics of the day. Currently, only one company like Netflix has the safes to give you full control of such a project. To that end, a series of images watch The Irishman as intended.
We really hope this video of Mandy co-writer Aaron Stewart-Ahn is a joke.
Just like Once upon a time … In Hollywood, the lack of dialogue of female characters in The Irishman inspired some discussion. Mark Harris of V.F. has a broader view of masculinity and these two films that is worth checking out. But for a quick gag, there's that.
For some viewers, the aging effects in The Irishman work perfectly. This is clearly not the case at all.
Without entering the spoiler territory (the film is only airing for two days!), One of the most interesting aspects of The Irishman, as Lawson mentions in his critique, is how it rhymes with previous Scorsese films. There are many details. This will not ruin anything if you have not watched.
We expect much more confrontation between these two breakfast cereals.
Finally, nothing can officially happen on Film Twitter without someone creating this GIF.
