I don't really watch movies anymore. But I did break for Many Saints of Newark. I'm not really a huge Sopranos fan, but I know enough about it to do what any good Sopranos fan does: Speculate on pretentious long shot theories.

When I complain about how old I am, I'm always bringing up what Tony said in the show to his psychiatrist... "It's good to be in a thing from the ground floor. I came too late for that, I know. But lately I'm getting the feeling I might be in at the end. That the best is over." I bring this up a lot because that's how I feel about my life, and I wanna know what people do to feel happy when they're faced with this.

That was in the show. Now the movie. The Many Saints of Newark takes place during the 1967 Newark riots. Tony is a kid. And his father, Johnny Boy, is captain of the Soprano crew. Johnny Boy shaves his mustache. Is he just shaving his mustache? Is the cat at the end of The Sopranos just a cat? No. Everything means something. See, in the original days of Sicilian-American crime, the big players were called "Mustache Petes." Those days came to an end and the next era began around the time of the Newark riots. Johnny Boy shaves his mustache as a symbol of the old ways dying and the new ways coming into being. Like his own son, Johnny Boy also came in at the end. He missed out on the best time to be a gangster. Or at least the supposed best time.

So I watch this because Johnny Boy is a "late bloomer" when it comes to Sicilian-American crime. So I can maybe get an answer for what someone should do when they missed out on the formative years of whatever they care about. Sadly, Johnny Boy was barely in the movie and once again I don't think I have any answers.

What lesson should I take from this? That the life of a criminal is a sad one and often not what you hope it will be? That you should make the most of what you have?

Maybe the lesson is "Every end is a new beginning." You come in at the end, you witness a new beginning.

Dont know if its just my big depression but I found the movie very boring. After 15 minutes of wathcing just I fast forwarded through it quickly. It didnt feel like goodfellas or casino at all. Irishman was good too. many saints had a solid cast so I dont get it

For the 2000s? If you wanna see teenage strippers get beaten to death what modern shows are doing that?
