[ # ] The Irishman might be the best Mafia film since The Godfather
July 31st, 2019 under Al Pacino, Robert De Niro


Somehow I missed that Martin Scorsese is doing a film for Netflix and The Irishman stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel. If that cast with that director does not scream that it will dominate the Oscars in 2020, then nothing will.

What is this film about? It is an “epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, 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.”

I don’t normally like these type of films, but even I want to see it. Then again I have always been interested to find out what really happened to Hoffa. Maybe this film will solve it. With legends like the ones in this feature, they can do anything. Capiche?

The Irishman does not have a release date, but it will be playing in select theaters and streaming on Netflix this fall. I expect it to make a killing at the box office and be a hit on the service. See what I did there?
