Martin Scorsese contributes to organized crime in a major way with his first Netflix movie, the three and a half hour play The Irishman.
The film is playing in the New York Film Festival this week, therefore a new trailer has now arrived to showcase the film starring Robert De Niro. And in case you somehow did not know, this is not only an old De Niro, but also a younger De Niro brought back to the big screen because of de-aging technology that is electronic.
Fallon is not just a trusted politician, and he isn't going to offer any helpful criticism when De Niro was his first guest on The Tonight Show and they are premiering a new trailer on NBC. So we are going to have to await the very first critical reactions to receive a clearer idea about what folks think of the film.
But based on this trailer, this looks just like the type of movie you'd need from Scorsese without feeling like he's treading the familiar land of GoodFellas, Casino, or even The Departed. Has any filmmaker coated the telescope so broadly without appeal or any steam? That's how you know Scorsese is really a master at work.
Having said this, I think the biggest concern of this film is how nicely the de-aging technology works on De Niro and his co-stars Al Pacino along with Joe Pesci.
Many stills have appeared a little too touched including video game figures instead of actors by convincing visual outcomes, manipulated. Maybe it'll look much better in the last cut of the movie.
All I know is that a play that actually asks the audience attention in on the celebrities, although since this isn't a blockbuster with a great deal of razzle dazzle, this must be extremely convincing to encircle it.
The Irishman 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 together with some of the most infamous figures of the 20th century.
Centuries, the movie offers a journey through the hidden corridors of crime: its own inner workings, also chronicles one of the mysteries in American history, the disappearance of union boss Jimmy Hoffa.
