The Irishman has been one of the biggest and hotly anticipated releases of the whole year. It is a massive film for Netflix, where there are high expectations, both critically and revenue-wise.
The reason for all the above is the once in a lifetime combination of Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci with director Martin Scorsese. It gets even crazier as it’s a gangster movie, a genre that all these legends specialise in, and have made iconic films in the process.
Here is a piece of good news to everyone who has followed The Irishman. The movie was recently premiered at the New York Film Festival, and the early reactions are terrific. Many are hailing it as a classic, and a top contender for the Oscar season ahead. Of course, it needs to be taken with a pinch of salt as current movies rarely match the classics of the past, no matter how much they are hyped. Still, the excellent response is an indicator of a decent film in the worst case and not a disappointment.
Another shocking detail that has come out is the run-time which is nearly three and a half-hour. It looks like a wet dream of sorts for movie aficionados who have been craving for coming together of legends for ages.
The Irishman bows in cinemas on a limited release on November 1st. It will be streaming on Netflix from November 27th.
