The Irishman hits select theatres on November 1st, and will be available to stream on Netflix from November 27th.

Robert De Niro has mentioned he hopes President Donald Trump will get impeached following his communications with the Ukranian president.


The opening-night feature of the New York Film Festival, The Irishman is a long, discursive tale told by an old man in a nursing home in the 1990s. It will play first for members of the press Friday morning and then have its red-carpet premiere in the evening.

What are critics saying about Netflix's The Irishman? Partially due to its extensive de-aging effects, it cost some $160 million to make.


"It doesn't happen maybe with one gunshot", said Scorsese cryptically. Failing that, a lot of viewers who see it on Netflix, on which it debuts November 27, are going to fall asleep in the middle. What I will say instead, is this: The Irishman is Scorsese's biggest work, one that will reward revisits and rewinds, one that might require multiple trips to the bathroom but needs nothing trimmed, one that explores themes that Scorsese has chased for years and also ones that are entirely new. He often feels like the heart of the movie, if Frank is the muscle; for much of it, De Niro is stoic to the point of impenetrability, an Easter Island statue in wingtips and a rayon bowling shirt. As depicted in the trailer, the film takes place over many years, and a combination of makeup and digital de-aging techniques by Industrial Light & Magic have been employed to make some of the cast appear younger in certain scenes. Based on Charles Brandt's nonfiction book I Heard You Paint Houses, it is a film about friendship and loyalty between men who commit unspeakable acts and turn on a dime against each other, and the possibility of redemption in a world where it seems as distant as the moon. For example, Pacino plays Jimmy Hoffa in the movie. "The technology kept evolving; it kept changing, kept making things simpler", said producer Jane Rosenthal. Here is how NYFF describes the movie: "The Irishman is a richly textured epic of American crime, a dense, complex story told with astonishing fluidity". De Niro deliberately underplays the part, maintaining a granite face as his character drifts into damnation.

Logistically, The Irishman represents one of Scorsese's most ambitious films, carrying a run time of just under three and a half hours.


And even though many assume they've made numerous films together, this is Scorsese's first movie with Pacino.
