Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci are revelatory in Martin Scorsese’s elegiac gangster opus.

Martin Scorsese’s cinematic mastery is on full display in this sweeping crime saga. Left behind by the world, former hit man and union truck driver Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) looks back from a nursing home on his life’s journey through the ranks of organized crime: from his involvement with Philadelphia mob boss Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci) to his association with Teamsters union head Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino) to the rift that forced him to choose between the two.

An intimate story of loyalty and betrayal, The Irishman (based on the real-life Sheeran’s confessions, as told to writer Charles Brandt for I Heard You Paint Houses) is a uniquely reflective late-career triumph that balances its director’s virtuoso set pieces with a profoundly personal rumination on aging, mortality, and the decisions and regrets that shape a life.

“This is Scorsese’s least sentimental picture of mob life, and for that reason his most poignant . . . A gift for cinephiles.”

—A. O. Scott, The New York Times
