Cannes 2023: Scorsese, De Niro and DiCaprio triumph

There is always crime in Osage. Representatives of a wealthy tribe were killed. Molly’s relatives also begin to die – more of her sisters. After all, she herself, a diabetic, although she had her first insulin injection, could no longer get out of bed.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” is a powerful and heartbreaking story about greed driving crime, horrifying violence, and a lack of remorse. Robert De Niro gives an excellent performance – walking in the glory of “The King,” who funded everything in town – from the church to the dance school – while ruthlessly enriching himself by walking – literally – over the dead. Even more interesting is DiCaprio as the mysterious Ernest, who, perhaps, falls in love with Molly, has three children with her, lives like a donut in butter, although he has earned nothing, and at the same time crosses all boundaries and gradually, led by his uncle, destroys It’s all around you for fortune. Scorsese gives viewers a haunting study of a world that has lost all sense of morality.

The story takes place in the 1920s. Tom White arrives from the newly created FBI, which is already headed by J.J. Edgar Hoover, to the Osage. He is the one who finds out the truth about the mass murders in the city. In Gran’s book, he is a central figure, and only appears on screen in the second half of the movie, because Roth and Scorsese decide to put Ernest and his uncle in the lead. They were right.

Harrison Ford

In the movie, very traditional, but executed perfectly. Besides De Niro and DiCaprio, all of the cast give great performances, especially Lily Gladstone as Molly. Cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto, editing by regular collaborator Thelma Schoonmaker, music by Robbie Robertson – everything is of the highest standard. Scorsese’s old team is holding on strong. And in style best, she’s joined by Paul Thomas Anderson and production designer Alejandra Iñárritu.
