/Filmcast Ep. 546 - The Irishman (GUEST: Melissa Tamminga From Seattle Screen Scene)

As 2019 comes to an end, David, Devindra, and Jeff evaluate the merits of "worst of the year" list. For the feature review, the cast plus Melissa Tamminga, writer for @SeattleScreen, discuss The Irishman, the latest crime drama directed and produced by Martin Scorsese. Does the three and half hour Netflix epic live up to its spiritual predecessors Mean Streets and GoodFellas?
