It’ll be a late night for hundreds of industry operators and finaglers this evening. Netflix insists that the 7pm Irishman premiere at the Chinese will start on time (as premiere screenings always start a good half-hour later than announced). If it actually starts on time, which I doubt, it’ll be over at 10:30 pm. I’m figuring more like a 7:15 pm launch and a 10:45 pm conclusion. And then comes a big party at the Roosevelt, which will likely endure until 1 am if not later. I can’t wait to see it again. The first time is for recognition of quality, of course, but it’s mainly about getting wet, swimming the required number of laps and then towelling off. The second time is always the meditative charm.
