The Many Saints… does a fair job covering a lot of territory. It’s clearly too much to adequately cover in just one two hour film.
“Gilroy has made a solid film. Not a spectacular one. If he hadn’t made the complete masterpiece Nightcrawler, I would be more impressed with what he tries to achieve here and less disappointed in the fact that he’s set such a high bar I seem intent on holding him to.”
It’s early in the year, but so far, this is the best comedy. I haven’t laughed at a film considered a comedy in several years. Let’s hope this is the start of a trend.
