To Be Determined
Martin Scorsese’s epic saga of organized crime in postwar America, as told by a hit man, stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in director Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
This is the best movie of the year so far and one of the best films of the decade.—Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
The Irishman is all about the end of something. It is to gangster movies what John Ford’s “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” was to westerns. Without a doubt, it’s a masterpiece.—Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
Astonishingly, instead of business as usual, The Irishman is a revelation, as intoxicating a film as the year has seen, allowing Scorsese to use his expected mastery of all elements of filmmaking to ends we did not see coming.—Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
With The Irishman, America’s greatest living director creates his late-career masterpiece, a deeply felt addition that vibrantly sums up every landmark in his crime-cinema arsenal, from 1973’s “Mean Streets” through “Goodfellas,” “Casino,” “Gangs of New York,” and the Oscar-winning “The Departed.”—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
