From The Booth

Variety’s Owen Gliberman led the parade of rave reviews following the NY Film Fest debut, “Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman is a coldly enthralling, long-form knockout—a majestic Mob epic with ice in its veins. It’s the film that, I think, a lot us wanted to see from Scorsese: a stately, ominous, suck-in-your-breath summing up, not just a drama but a reckoning, a vision of the criminal underworld that’s rippling with echoes of the director’s previous Mob films, but that also takes us someplace bold and new.” Robert De Niro takes the title role of mob hitman Frank Sheeran alongside Al Pacino as union boss Jimmy Hoffa. We’re in a bloody period of American history that saw Hoffa disappear, the Kennedy assassinations and many more less famous deaths. The all-star cast includes Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, Jesse Plemons and Scorsese regulars Harvey Keitel and Joe Pesci. There will be blood and violence, but that said, The Irishman is Highly Recommended.
