Whether seen on the big screen or a small one, "The Irishman" is among 2019’s best motion pictures and should receive its share of Oscar attention in 2020.
Combining the two movies, there’s a clear beginning and ending, and if the latter isn’t as strong or promising as the former, at least the entire story is told.
The problem with "The Intruder," as with its antecedents, is a combination of narrative predictability and character stupidity.
