n_l, even though you think The Irishman is Marty's greatest movie, would you also agreed that it's a flawed movie? (Hell, some people feel OUATIA is Leone's best movie, as well as flawed.)

Is The Irishman really at/near the top of your list of greatest movies ever?

It is flawed, yes, but to me not as much as you seem to think it is. I'd say it's more difficult and experimental than flawed. A good part of what people think are flaws are what makes it so great... but I see how it's also closing the door to many moviegoers.

I don't really put it near the top of my list of greatest movies ever YET, it's way too fresh in my mind, I still have a lot to process. It took me years to understand The Social Network was up there in the top 20. But I can say that no other movie I saw at the time of its initial release made such a deep impact on me, and that, right now, that's the movie I think the most about (which has been the case since I first saw it in late 2019). Seriously, I think about it all the time and cannot stop myself from watching clips from it. So, right now, it's my favorite film. It will probably get distanced by OUATIA and OUATITW soon enough, but I'm pretty sure that in the end, it will end up on my official top 20 list, and there is a good chance it's gonna be in the first half of that list.

Among all the movies movies I saw at the time of their initial release, only The Social Network and Inside Llewyn Davis made a similar impact on me as a human being, but the former misses something huge toward the end and the later is of course way less universal. It's mostly the struggling artist in me who was hit in the face with Davis' psychological exhaustion.

Is it really possible to be both a struggling artist and a complete sell-out at the same time? I'm asking for a friend.

 ;D

Well I know I am both, effortlessly. And I know for a fact Mr Power is too (as well as the worst Malick fanboy on this planet, so that's a lot) so I guess it's pretty easy to do.

The top spot is for CoR. The rest of the master's filmmography is just poor Sergio trying and failing to reach that level of excellence again.

Scorsese teaches filmmaking on masterclass.com

https://www.masterclass.com/classes/martin-scorsese-teaches-filmmaking

Costs $180 for yearly membership, with access to all their master classes. You can click that link to see a 2-minute promo by Scorsese.

By the way, I bought it last year. Scorsese' masterclass wasn't very interesting to me, it's targeted at people who're really early in their career. But it covers everything, from sets and costumes to the use of music through Marty's biography. Sorkin's one is much denser (and of course, much more focused, which explains a lot).

So I saw Killers of the Flower Moon and have no idea how to rate it. It's fascinating, often funny (really often), but also slow and quiet for 3h27, which is a lot even for OUATIA fans. At least Marty broke the spell: he is now able to make pre WW2 movies and make them look and feel absolutely terrific.

Just in view of plot, characters, and actors this is the most interesting looking Scorsese since the 90s.

But the runtime is again frrrrightening, my girl friend will never watch this in cinema. She skipped already Oppenheimer for its 3 hours, and that was one she was interested in.

Well The Irishman turned out to be one of the best movies in the history of cinema (now that time has passed and that i watched it several times I can assert it more confidently). This one is quiter, funnier and feels longer. What Marty takes from his 90's here is his ability to precisely describe complex mechanisms (here: the political/economical/familial/racial systems behind those murders). He had not done so, with such precision, since Casino (I will never forgive him for bailing out of Wolf of Wall Street on that aspect). KofFM also has the best cast of supporting characters in any Scorsese movie. All of the henchmen are incredible, even with the very limited screentime they're given to work with. Thelma is still the best editor the world has ever seen.

But . . . did you see it in IMAX?

If not, do not speak to me on this or any subject ever again.
