I think this is the best entertainment Hollywood has had to offer in a long time. Some people are very picky when it comes to Scorsese since they know what hes made in the past. Should this have been made by anyone else I’m sure it would have been more of a success among so called “true cinephiles.”
P.S. Check out “The Friends of Eddie Coyle” if you liked this. It shares many similar qualities, most notably the gritty, situations and quick-witted dialog, analyzing the multi-faceted functions of the criminal mind.
