Storyline

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.

Trivia

Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, and Harvey Keitel have all worked for Martin Scorsese before, and De Niro's collaborations with Scorsese have almost always involved one of the other two actors. However, this is the first time Pesci and Keitel have appeared together in a film. Pesci and De Niro's previous film with Scorsese, Goodfellas, featured Keitel's then-wife, Lorraine Bracco.

Frank Sheeran: One of a thousand working stiffs... until I wasn't no more. And then I started painting houses... myself.

Review the Movie, not the Director
7 November 2019 | by stephen-624See all my reviews

Peoples are losing their minds over the sainted director, forgetting the movie. Sure, it's well made, fascinating history. But it's second nature for De Niro, and Pacino overreaches at times. The third reel is repetitive over the decline of the De Niro character. Would be a better movie at 2hr 30. In fact, I thought it had ended about then, but it meandered on another hour.
