The Irishman 12/2019

The Irishman – This biographical crime thriller follows Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) as he recalls his past years working for the Bufalino crime family. Now older, the WWII veteran once again reflects on his most prolific hits and, in particular, considers his involvement with his good friend Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance in 1975. In the 1950s, truck driver Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) gets involved with Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci) and his Pennsylvania crime family. As Sheeran climbs the ranks to become a top hit man, he also goes to work for Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino) — a powerful Teamster tied to organized crime.

Q-tips say: See it! A long movie- almost 3 hrs but moves very fast. There are a lot of reasons to recommend this film, but the main ones can be summarized in surnames – Scorsese. De Niro. Pacino. Pesci.
