'An interesting hybrid': Scorsese called his film 'an interesting hybrid' as both something made for theatres and for watching at home

Though the film's genre and cast, including Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Harvey Keitel, has led some to expect a gangster thriller in the mould of GoodFellas or Casino, The Irishman is a more reflective, less flashy rumination on morality, violence and American power.

Through de-aging visual effects, the performances by De Niro, Pesci and Pacino span decades of their characters' lives.

It stars De Niro as Sheeran, a mafia hitman and high-ranking Teamster official. 


'Extraordinary time of change': 'All of us now are in an extraordinary time of change,' Scorsese said. 'But when it comes down to it, I felt - Bob (De Niro) felt - the picture had to be made for ourselves'

Star: Before acting in the Godfather Part II (pictured), Pacino was making a name for himself in films such as Serpico

Shortly before his death, the real Sheeran confessed to killing Jimmy Hoffa (played here by Pacino) — a confession that remains in dispute, with Hoffa's disappearance officially unsolved. 

Scorsese called his film 'an interesting hybrid' as both something made for theatres and for watching at home.

'All of us now are in an extraordinary time of change,' Scorsese said. 'But when it comes down to it, I felt - Bob (De Niro) felt - the picture had to be made for ourselves.'  


Fame: De Niro shot to success overnight when he was cast in the Godfather Part II (1974) alongside Pacino, while Keitel hit the big time after performing in Mean Streets (1973) and Resevoir Dogs (1992)
