Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco was originally envisoned for the part of Skinny Razor. Upon meeting Maniscalco, Scorsese saw a darker edge to the comedian and offered him a more sinister part as Crazy Joe Gallo. Maniscalco accepted the role and Bobby Cannavalle took the role of Skinny Razor. See more »
When the taxis are being dumped into the water there are 2 distinct models of Checker cars, some have side maker lights on the front and back fenders, others do not. Side marker lighting was not made mandatory in the USA until 1968, meaning some of the cars in the shot are pre-1968 model Checkers, and others are 1968 or newer. See more »
When I was young, I thought house painters painted houses. What did I know? I was a working guy. A business agent for Teamster Local 107 out of South Philly.
One of a thousand working stiffs... until I wasn't no more. And then I started painting houses... myself.

The movie's original title - I Hear You Paint Houses- is shown onscreen twice: once at the beginning of the film and once at the end after the title card for The Irishman is shown. See more »
Slow First Half, Masterful second half but overall should have been made 20 years ago
The De-aging effect in the first half of the movie was very distracting and not really hiding well the old age of the main cast. Deniro, Pacino and Pesci all move and talk like old people...perhaps because they are old and some cgi can't fully hide that fact. The 2nd half of the movie on the other hand felt much more natural as the characters got older (no more distracting de-aging effect) and both the story and direction became A class. Scorsese did a great job creating tension and everyone else involved (actors, camera work etc.) gave their best.
If only this movie was made 20 years ago I'm sure it would have become a classic masterpiece without this annoying de-aging effect. As it is, this is a flawed masterpiece at best.
