Don't mind me I'm just gonna dance and cry forever. What an ending.
Hey, remember that great string of 'class warfare' films we got back in 2019? You know... Parasite, Us, Atlantics, etc. Now flip all that upside down and picture the trashiest, most vapid and dehumanizing version of that possible. And that's just the first 30 minutes!
In which latino protesters are portrayed as cruel, murderous savages and the white socioeconomical elite as the helpless victims of a horror film. All surrounded by endless misery and [distractingly] gruesome violence. Trying really hard…
Oh my god it's so fucking sad. Like seriously. That last act [those last 30min specially] are deeply, deeply depressing; and a testament of Scorsese's career & growth.
On the other hand, the joy of seeing Pesci on the big screen cannot be matched. All the while Pacino gives his best performance since Heat.
