— Film critic Glenn Kenny tweeted what I told Hollywood-Elsewhere’s Jeffrey Wells on Saturday, that we should not expect Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” to be another “Goodfellas” or “Casino.” I told Wells, during our podcast, that “The Irishman” will no doubt feel like it was “made more by the guy who made Silence than the guy who made Goodfellas.” I stand by that assertion, especially after having read the book the film is based on (Charles Brandt’s “I Heard You Paint Houses”) and then Steven Zaillian’s magnificent 10-year-old screenplay.

The film could still very well skip fall festivals altogether, but many, including myself, are in denial this could potentially happen. At the very least AFI, right?
