But . . . did you see it in IMAX?

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


You think it will make that big of a difference?

I?m certainly looking forward to seeing this one.

I wouldn't watch it in IMAX. This isn't Casino this is much quieter, less in your face. It's more of a cinema that watches than a cinema that immerses.

So glad this was mainly shot on film.

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.
Is there an intermission???

No it's the real deal they tie you up to the chair they go full clockwork orange on you.
It's actually supposed to be seen at home in streaming where you can pause when you want.

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).

For certain reasons I only watched half of it 2 years ago, but I did not care much so far, and since then never really tried to see the rest. Yes, there was some good stuff worth a 2nd look, but overall it was not very entertaining.

Scorsese's best film in the last 25 years was The Wolf of Wall Street, but it suffered from being much too long.

As is usual, stanton makes the proper calls.

I don?t say that often because most of the time it?s stupid but in this case you can consider you?ve seen 5% of the movie. The first hour and a half (a bit less actually, like 1:20) is a prologue. That prologue is actually very powerful and I wouldn?t cut a frame, but you can only feel that way during a second viewing. The second viewing (where you know where this is going) is when every single little detail makes sense and tears you apart. I know the following sentence isn?t gonna convince anyone but there is no other way to put it: then there is 30-40 min where DeNiro has a discussion then takes a flight and comes back and this is the most intense cinema experience of my whole adult life. Then the movie becomes Haneke?s Amour for another hour and it?s almost as good. So even though I doubt you?ll get the intense experience I have every time I watch it if you ever decide to try again but please note that you haven?t seen the movie at all yet. Just the opening montage.

Wolf of Wall Street is a lot of fun but it?s even more of a shame.

Yes I?ve seen that one! Great little talk. It?s a shame many of the clips Edgar choses to show are the ones we?ve all seen too many times. Marty still manages to say something I didn?t know about the ? you?re talking to me ? scene. Yet Edgar being Edgar he is in love with the dark comedy Scorsese from the 80?s and it?s good that they spend some time to discuss all this: this is the best rarely discussed side of Marty.

Not just the collection of clips. I wish Edgar had directed Marty toward some of the films that get little attention. My third favorite Scorsese film is New York, New York--I would love to hear Marty talk about that. Also, I want to hear what he has to say about Cape Fear and Bringing Out the Dead. Rounding up the usual suspects does very little for me.

With ?Killers of the flower moon?, I did not make the same mistake I made with ?Oppenheimer.? This time I ate lunch before my 11:15 am showing.

It was powerful stuff, but I wasn?t ever completely blown away by cinematic craft. If we?re going with recent slow-burn Scorsese, then I?d take Silence any day. That includes The Irishman.
