Both masterpieces of 2019, but I'll give The Irishman a slight edge

Parasite a slight edge.

Really liked both. Irishman is let down slightly by the fact there's a lot of influence in it from previous Scorsese movies. Parasite is intelligent and original!

The Irishman is to flawed to be considered a masterpiece.

Parasite handily

The Irishman is authentic middle ages Christian torture. I'd rather watch Parasite twice at the same evening than watch The Irishman ever again.

Irishman could have been shorter and better. Parasite is fantastic.

I really disliked the characters in Parasite. Didn't find anything intelligent about it. Shocked that it was even nominated in the first place. The Irishman is a much better movie despite its length.

This is tough. Really tough. I think Parasite might be the more perfect movie, but The Irishman made me feel more. Introspective, haunting, funny, sad, nostalgic, The Irishman is one of my favorite Martin Scorsese movies, and it gets the edge here
