Quoted from Dan_P

One thing that never fails to brighten my day, however, is the sound of Al Pacino yelling at other people...


That one scene of Pacino yelling at his guys in his office is hysterical!

Yeah, I loved the back and forths between Pacino and Stephen Graham too. The latter more than holds his own during those exchanges.

Caught this over the weekend. It's a grower. Not as bombastic, fast-paced, or even interesting as a lot of the Scorsese films it's been compared to (Goodfellas, etc.), but I did enjoy it. I'd even say there're a good number of quotable/rewatchable scenes throughout that you'd hope for in a Scorsese film. I know; I've already rewatched them on YouTube.

Al Pacino was the standout for me. I'm not even a huge fan and this might just be my favorite performance from him. I'm glad the film went out of its way to point out that kids nowadays (i.e. me) don't know much about Jimmy Hoffa. That's true for me at least, and now I have to wonder if he really was that much of a badass (at his peril, it seems). The meeting scene with him and Steven Graham was just gold.

I also loved Joe Pesci's performance. I'd even go so far as to say it's against type. Very measured and even tender. Not how I'm used to seeing him.

Really, everyone was great. Even randos like Ray Romano, who I don't usually enjoy. I suppose I'm glossing over de Niro here, but his acting just goes without saying these days. It's an understated performance, regardless. Definitely not the crowd pleasure, I wouldn't expect. I still came away from this thinking it's basically a Jimmy Hoffa movie.

Best scene in the film involves a fish. Not like any other scene, tonally. Even Tarantino-esque. Totally caught me off guard. It's a classic for me now though. Love it!

Length wasn't as bad as I was afraid it would be. It's an ask, though, and probably not necessary. Still, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. Relieved, even.

I watched it through in a single sitting, and overall, I was entertained, but let's be serious here.

This is too long...WAY TOO LONG.  This is dull for the most part, and although I was sure the finale would hit hard, for me, it never really did.

For what this could and should have been, considering the talent and money involved, this is a letdown for me, but it definitely has its moments and performances are top notch.

Grade - C


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.
