12.15.19Netflix Huh.

Well... This was interesting. I'd heard this was good but boring, but I don't think it's boring so much as designed to be slow because it's the cinematic equivalent of letting your grandpa bend your ear at thanksgiving dinner. It's like a three and a half hour meander. It's an interesting choice to make, probably because everyone involved in that age. This is totally an old man's movie. So it feels slow while simultaneously delivering constant information through all of Scorsese's usual bag of tricks. It definitely took me a few sittings to make it through, but I can't say it was bad. While it's kind of nice to see every Italian actor in the same movie, it's also kind of a weird reminder of a bygone era, like watching The Rolling Stones play a live gig in 2019.
