“Motherless Brooklyn” is a long movie and requires patience as the plot unfolds and the mysteries unravel. All actors involved give strong performances and that’s what makes the movie worth viewing. There is action although it’s slow in coming and more of the gangster variety.
The movie soundtrack is excellent if you like jazz. “Motherless Brooklyn” is worth a look.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
