Viewing Notes

Goddamn that was great. Totally a trip viewing that with a huge crowd 90 percent older than me. Like these people lived this. Just amazing.

Really wish Scorsese kept the original title “I Heard You Paint Houses” as it’s just brilliant. At least it’s used for the movie title cards.

This is one of those rare films that despite the runtime you rarely feel it as it’s paced so well and so rich with story and characters. I shouldn’t be but I’m so impressed by what Scorsese has crafted in 2019, the year of our lord. Like this is god-tier work. I’ll be thinking about this one for a while.

funny aside: this film also suffers from Collector Car Syndrome (like Motherless Brooklyn). I just forced myself to believe that all these mobsters had to have mint condition cars at all times.
