Kill The Irishman: A Good One

Cleveland certainly was an explodey place in the 1970s. Kill The Irishman is the real story of mobster Danny Greene, who is painted as a complex heroic villain. Or a villainous hero. One of the other. Regardless, frozen turkeys were involved. Anyway, the many minor characters who surround him aren't well fleshed out, and you are often wondering who is who. The screenplay is somewhat hard-to-follow, as if some key information has been merely hinted at. If you're unfamiliar with the history of organized crime in Cleveland it makes the first half of the film a tough go but it all comes together at the end. I enjoyed it. I watched it on Netflix. Here's a trailer:
