Just finished this 30 mins ago, took a day off to watch it, but house jobs and work got in the way, so started it around 4ish.
There is a 20 odd minute interview with them all, think it starts after the film, search for it on Netflix.
We all know that it’s long but I think the pace of it suits, especially the contrast with these old guys and the evil they can visit upon people, and the every day world going on around them.
It’s hard to be critical when I’m such a fan of them all but Pesci is the stand out for me, possibly because his calm, powerful delivery is the opposite of any other role I’ve seen him in. And none of them could play Hoffa as well as Al.
I’ve got this unsettled feeling after watching it. How betrayal trumps loyalty, but loyalty drives betrayal. That world they live in can be over in a breath and seems so pointless.
Like watching big old male elephants monitor and control their territories. The loneliness of De Niro and all that he wants is out of reach because of his actions. Hoping the wife will want to watch it and I’ll give it a second go.
The CGI didn’t put me off, see the documentary for how they did it.
