Yes, The Irishman is painfully slow and excruciatingly long. And yes, I'll say the word, and I apologize to Mr. Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino and Pesci. They are all idols of me and it is very hard for me to say it, but I found The Irishman boring. There, I said it.
Following that shared feeling, someone on Twitter
had the idea to break down the film into four parts, as if it was a mini-series. Here you go:
Episode 1: I Heard You Paint Houses
From start to 49:00.
Cut when Jimmy Hoffa ends the call.
Episode 2: Hoffa
From 49:00 to 1:40:00
Cut when Jimmy the Blond is introduced.
Episode 3: What Kind of Fish?
From 1:40:00 to 2:47:30
Cut when Frank exits the house.
Episode 4: It Is What It Is
From 2:47:30 to the end
You are welcome.
