Netflix has proven its credibility time and again. The streaming platform has proved that even though it does shell out some really mediocre shows, *cough* Insatiable *cough*, it also is capable of making really good content. And among that good content is Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman. It really came as a surprise when everyone first heard that the legendary director would be doing a film for a streaming platform. But here we are. Only a few days before the release of the movie on Netflix. The Irishman is already screening in select theaters.
The Irishman is what Cinema really is
The movie is very much hyped and right fully so. It’s directed by one of the most talented directors out there and has an impeccable cast. The cast includes legends like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Anna Paquin and Bobby Cannavale. That’s too much talent and too many Oscars for one film. By the look of the first trailer, The Irishman seemed like an ode to the Godfather series. And according to the critics who’ve actually managed to see the film, it is an ode and also so much more.
The movie is has received a lot of praise from the critics and from the select people who got to watch it when it released in selected cinema’s on November 1st. The Guardian has called the movie,

However, its the final trailer, so we guess we won’t be teased anymore about the movie. Now we just wait for The Irishman to release on Netflix.
