3 reasons to watch The Irishman on Netflix
Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman was officially released on Netflix today, two months after its premier at the New York Film Festival on September 27. Adapted from Frank Sheeran’s 2004 memoir “I Heard You Paint Houses,” The Irishman recounts Sheeran’s hitman days, affiliation with the Bufalino family and involvement in the murder of Jimmy Hoffa, longtime president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters union. Already considered one of Scorsese’s best films, The Irishman follows a long line of iconic movies by the legendary director including Taxi Driver, Goodfellas and Casino. Critics already predict that The Irishman could potentially earn Netflix its first Oscar for Best Picture.
