The Irishman

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Escape from all those Thanksgiving holiday weekend duties with a riveting three-and-a-half-hour mob epic as Martin Scorsese's The Irishman departs theaters and arrives on Netflix. One of the best-reviewed films of the year, The Irishman follows decades in the life of fixer Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) as he befriends doomed Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino) and commits dirty deeds for dead-eyed mafia kingpin Russell Bufalino (Joe Pesci). Is this the true story of what really happened to Hoffa? Almost certainly not. But the film is less of a docudrama and more of a character study, examining how crime always has a price — even when you get away with it. "It's not about the facts," Scorsese told EW in our deep-dive Irishman interview. "It's the world [the characters are] in, the way they behave. It's about [a character] stuck in a certain situation." One thing's for sure: This movie is cinema (even if it's on your TV). —James Hibberd
