“the Irish” of Martin Scorsese It hit theaters against all odds. Many studios refused to take Jimmy Hoffa’s case to the big screen, but the director’s determination was stronger. Its premiere conquered the critics and earned her 10 Oscar nominations, although in the end she did not win any awards and was labeled as the big loser of the night. Is it on its way to becoming a cult work?
They say that time usually puts things in their place by way of consolation, but we are ready to vindicate the feature film on the occasion of the 80 years of the genius responsible for “Mean streets”, “Goodfellas”, “Casino”, “Gangs of New York” and “The departed”. That its duration more than 3 hours is not an impediment to appreciate it.
The film introduced us to Frank Sheeran, the man who killed union member Hoffa. The disappearance of the victim was one of the great mysteries of the United States and it took 30 years to solve, although there would never be enough time for the murderer to forgive himself for the betrayal of his friend.
Unlike his previous films, the spectacularity of the world of the mafia is lost and gains depth thanks to the melancholic, conscious and reflective gaze of the New York filmmaker.
There will never be another film like “The Irishman” for its cultural, historical and aesthetic value. It has Martin Scorsese’s DNA embedded from start to finish. It is made by his master hand, refined for decades and with total mastery of each frame.
The tribute to an artist while alive is always the whim of his fans, but there was no one better than him to pay tribute to his cinema and the men with whom he forged it. It is a farewell letter to an era, with no reckoning or regrets for further effort. His contribution and his work will endure for a long time.
