Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran is a man with a lot on his mind. The former labor union high official and hitman, learned to kill serving in Italy during the Second World War. He now looks back on his life and the hits that defined his mob career, maintaining connections with the Bufalino crime family. In particular, the part he claims to have played in the disappearance of his life-long friend, Jimmy Hoffa, the former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, who mysteriously vanished in late July 1975 at the age of 62.Written by
Scorsese's longest feature film yet. Clocking in at exactly 3 1/2 hours and surpassing his previous 3-hour film, The Wolf of Wall Street. See more »
After the assassination of President Kennedy, when Hoffa and his entourage are being interviewed outside the Teamsters' building, Ray Romano has on all-black frames on his glasses. Hoffa sees the flags are at half-mast.
In the next shot, where they re-raise the flags on the building roof, Romano is wearing different ones with metal on the lower part of the frames. See more »
When I was young, I thought house painters painted houses. What did I know? I was a working guy. A business agent for Teamster Local 107 out of South Philly.
One of a thousand working stiffs... until I wasn't no more. And then I started painting houses... myself.

Really really good
Amazing acting, great story lines and some twists. Loved how the story was told through the eyes of De Niro's character as he was at the end of his life.
For anyone that likes gangster movies, it is worth a watch - high quality actors from across the great gangster films. The only negative is that it lasts 3.5 hours. This would put me off watching it again soon, but definitely worth seeing for the first time.
Kept me glued throughout - defo give it a watch. You won't be disappointed.
