“The Irishman” Is A Tremendous Film

December 3, 2019

“The Irishman” with its roster of film greats, is well worth the 3 plus hours running time, as they are filled with excellent dialog, acting and scenes.

Robert DeNiro plays Frank Sheeran, whose story unfolds in the Martin Scorsese directed film, that is so relevant regarding this country’s makeup.

Al Pacino also is great, portraying Teamsters leader, James Riddel Hoffa while Joe Pesci as Pennsylvania crime boss Russell Bufalino, delivers (as always), when given crackling scenes to play.

Harvey Keitel and Anna Paquin, are two among many, in a tremendous supporting cast.

“The Irishman” is based on Charles Brandt’s 2004 book, “I Heard You Paint Houses.” The screenplay was written by Steven Zaillian. Music by: Robbie Robertson.

One more: Among the myriad producers of the film is Irwin Winkler. I will have more on his great career as such, in a future post.
