The Irishman (out Nov 7) is a crime/mobster flick from director Martin Scorsese. It's not a tale that will blow you away (we've seen this sort of stuff before) but Scorsese is a great storyteller. It's more about the characters and how they interact (lots of "Chinese whispers") than about what ultimately happens to them. Joe Pesci the pick of the outstanding cast. Grade: A-.
