FILM: The Irishman
Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci are reunited under Martin Scorsese for the first time since Goodfellas. The director’s massive, masterful new crime drama about memory, murder and the Mob also calls on Al Pacino and Harvey Keitel. All four actors are past their mid-70s, but collectively spend a lot of screen-time in flashbacks, playing much younger men. The Irishman, which gets a cinema release this week then streams on Netflix from 27th November, proves that they’ve all still got it – and so has Scorsese. Unmissable.
