The Irishman (Netflix)

The bell has rung and the 20th century mobster story has come to a permanent end scene. Every “wiseguy” who has ever been was duly and fairly represented and the narrative of the conflicts, the struggle, the identity, the family and the gain versus risk has come to a comprehensive end. Time proves that profit is forgettable, and the network of goodfellas eventually is caught, disappeared, flips or expires. This is the end of mobster stories as we’ve ever known them and it’s a masterpiece conclusion.
