Bravo Mr. David Chase, cast, and crew.

This film was amazing Alessandro Nivola did an awesome job. This movie did not let me down one bit I finally got that missing piece from all of the legendary mentions and stories of Dickie Moltesanti from the earlier series. Michael Gandolfini did a great job as a young Tony. I’m sure Jim is looking down at him and is proud of what he’s accomplished. All in all, David Chase should be proud of himself. He is iconic and undoubtedly one of my favorite storytellers of all time. Don’t ever stop
