Martin Scorsese creates a cinematic opera with THE IRISHMAN. It belts, sings, and soars with the right notes. Robert DeNiro is terrific. Al Pacino delivers his best performance in decades. Joe Pesci is a national treasure. Long but well worth it. #TheIrishman #NYFF57 @NETFLIX pic.twitter.com/W5v6HkTpkQ

The Irishman is based on the real-life memoir of Jimmy Hoffa written by Charles Brandt. The story is of Frank Sheeran (played by Robert Niro) a WWII veteran and a hitman who linked with infamous Bufalino crime family. Frank Sheeran works for the Italian Mob and closely associated with Russell Bufalino ( Joe Pesci) the Mafia boss. Later came Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pachino) in the story, the head of the powerful labor union in the US who join Sheeran’s company and become his friend.
The movie rambles around crime, guilt, loyalty, families in Scorsese’s style. The movie background soundtrack alive the scene back from the 90s. The Scorsese’s The Irishman involves flashbacks in flashbacks where De Niro takes back into the flashback of his life and also actors could be seen de-aged in flashbacks. Making Niro ship-shaped young is not a bad effort of Scorsese. Although, the de-aged fellas’ performance is robust in the whole movie.
Martin Scorsese’s heavy budget movie of 14 crores will be streamed digitally for the audience on Netflix on 27 November 2019.
