Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It’s fair to say that Scorsese’s meditation on religion wont be to everyone’s taste. It’s a long, slow, languishing movie that doesn’t rush to get anywhere in a hurry. It also features Adam Driver who, still, does little for me on screen. But stick with it and it’s a hell of a film which represents a labour of love for Scorsese that has taken decades to realise on screen. Garfield is excellent and the film looks amazing. Touch by rewarding.
