The Irishman (2019)
Dir: Martin Scorsese
‘Martin Scorsese’ is a huge name in Hollywood. Because he practically ran it for the past 50 years. He’s considered one of the greatest filmmakers ever, specially because of his consistency. Starting from Mean Streets (1973) his every single film has received love from both critics and fans worldwide. The latest addition is The Irishman.
Nobody makes Gangster movies like Martin Scorsese does. The story of The Irishman is about a hitman looking at his past life and his mob career. The movie’s original title was ‘ I Heard You Paint Houses’ as the book it was adapted from before it was changed to ‘The Irishman’. It’s the longest film made by Scorsese, having a runtime of about three and half hours.
The cast includes four Oscar winners, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Anna Paquin, and Joe Pesci. Yes, ‘The Irishman’ is a long watch, but that’s no reason to miss this because you’re not gonna feel a second wasted!
