The Irishman has been playing for two nights in New York, Los Angeles and a few other major cities. So what’s the HE commentariat verdict? Does Al Pacino have the Best Supporting Actor Oscar locked up, or is it Brad Pitt’s to lose? Favorite scenes? Thoughts about the last 30 or 40 minutes?

Advisory: No one is allowed to express views along the lines of that reprehensible Texas critic who said The Irishman doesn’t leave you with much to reflect upon, or words to that effect.
