Trivia

During an interview with The Playlist, Martin Scorsese teased that this would be different from his other gangster films, saying "I think this is different, I think it is. I admit that there are, you know, Goodfellas (1990) and Casino (1995) have a certain style that I created for them, it's on the page in the script actually. Putting Goodfellas (1990) together was almost like an afterthought, at times he was kind of rushing, he felt I'd already done it because he'd played it all out in terms of the camera moves and the editing and that sort of thing. The style of the picture, the cuts, the freeze-frames, all of this was planned way in advance, but here, it's a little different. The people are also older in The Irishman (2018), it's certainly more about looking back, a retrospective, so to speak, of man's life, and the choices that he's had to make." See more »

Simply Brilliant
14 October 2019 | by gary-simmSee all my reviews

I was worried about the length of the film before i attended the screening, but i can honestly say, i was gripped all the way through, De Niro back to his best, Pesci was fantastic, Pacino was electric, Keitel was menacing & Stephen Graham held his own amongst this legendary cast.

A return to this world that Scorsese has mastered with some of his best films & this film sits right up there right next to them.

Get comfy & enjoy the great story telling ability of these masters at work.
