Critics Hailed These Movies the Best of the 2010 Decade

The Irishman (2019)

Martin Scorsese’s epic three-hour gangster drama peers into the past of Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro), a former mobster who “painted houses” for the Bufalino crime family. Sheeran also details his role in the 1975 disappearance of his good friend Jimmy Hoffa. Technology caught up with need when Industrial Light & Magic developed an innovative, digital de-aging VFX process for the film. The Irishman may be 209 minutes long, but every minute is used wisely.
