Those of us who were too stingy to see Martin Scorsese’s latest film, The Irishman, during its limited Australian theatre run, have only a few days to wait before it hits our screens thanks to Netflix. The film, which sees the iconic director link up with longtime collaborators Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, is creating a huge amount of buzz at the moment, registering a solid 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
So here, we thought we’d get ourselves fired up for The Irishman by re-watching some of Scorsese’s most iconic scenes (it’s a tough job) and putting laying them out right here for your viewing pleasure. So sit back and enjoy:
If you’ve never stood in a mirror and uttered the lines “are you talking to me?” who even are you?
Some solid career advice from McConaughey’s Mark Hanna to Leo’s Jordan Belfort. Sadly this is probably the reason why so many bankers are wankers…
Talk about tension. There’s something so charming about Pesci’s sociopathic characters isn’t there?
One of the most intense scenes in the whole film… Nicholson’s character feels so imposing in this scene.
The number one lesson you can learn from Scorsese’s films is don’t ever mess with Joe Pesci.
Scorsese and DiCaprio show us what life inside the mind of “eccentric” billionaire Howard Hughes is like. Frankly, it doesn’t look pretty.
Daniel Day Lewis’ Bill The Butcher exudes dominance in his “You are neither cold nor hot” speech after his ruthless murder of Gleeson’s Walter McGavin.
A quickie but a goodie. Also, shoutout to Jonah Hill’s dancing which is somehow just as funny as DiCaprio here.
In case you were wondering, a mook (according to Google) is a stupid or incompetent person…
What the fuck are you doing on TV anyhow? It’s scenes like this that have got us so pumped for The Irishman..
