A Martin Scorsese picture.

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci star in 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, 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.

The Irishman is a work of real retrospection. It's a stunning achievement, worthy of a great director's twilight years.

Review Text

The movie is a masterpiece, one made by a man counting down his own years as if they were rosary beads.

Review Text

Instead of flash and brash, Martin Scorsese delivers an effectively moving portrait that focuses on the emotional toll of being atop the mob underworld.
