Haven't seen it since it came out, but I remember being impressed by DiCaprio. I think it was the first time I saw him in a film.

This doesn't sound too exciting for me, when the rumored Scorsese / Deniro collaborations are Frankie Machine and Paint Houses, both mob movies. Instead of growing and trying something different, they are treading old ground, while it might be good, it's not in the spirit of their classic partnership of pushing the limits of the screen

I think it is a very strong film that is extremely easy and enjoyable to watch.
De niro is fantastic in it as well as the bastard stepfather. He has some fantastic lines as well that you will be familiar with if you've ever heard those prank phone calls with those sound clips from his movies:

"Liar, Whore! Liar, Whore, and YOU KNOW IT!!!"
"You can get it doggystyle or you can get it laying on your side. This is my house and I make the rules."

re: The Irishman (I Heard You Paint Houses), D: Scorsese; S: DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci

supposedly Joe Pesci and Al Pacino might join De Niro and Scorsese!

http://www.deadline.com/2010/09/old-...ering/?_r=true

It's Goodfellas meets Casino meets Heat. So if you're a fan of those great crime movies, get ready: I'm told Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are now circling The Irishman, the mob drama that Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have been working on together based on the exploits of mob hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran as chronicled in the book I Heard You Paint Houses. The pic's being developed at Paramount by De Niro and Jane Rosenthal's Tribeca Productions.

Pacino has worked with De Niro in the Michael Mann-directed classic Heat, as well as Righteous Kill. Pesci and De Niro of course teamed with Scorsese on Goodfellas, Casino and Raging Bull. Steve Zaillian wrote the script.

Right now, Scorsese's off directing the 3D Hugh Cabret for GK Films, and this is one of a couple pictures he's considering next. Others include Silence, based on the Shusako Endo novel. Scorsese and GK Films nearly had the pic together with Benicio Del Toro, Daniel Day-Lewis and Gabriel Garcia Bernal in the Jay Cocks-scripted saga of Jesuits who face danger as they preach Christianity and try to find their mentor in 17th Century Japan. Scorsese will be in New York Wednesday as HBO premieres the pilot he directed for Boardwalk Empire, which is superb.

Wow, that would have been a great cast for Silence.

The economy, I think. I remember being really stoked about it but when I heard he was doing it right after Shutter Island and nothing came until just now with Hugo Cabret, I lost hope.

Thank you for the obvious reality hit, Debbie Downer.

Frankly, I'd rather see Pacino, De Niro and Pesci--and Harvey Keitel and Ray Liotta join Stallone & co. in...THE EXPENDABLES II---directed by Scorsese! (Or COPLAND II?)

re: The Irishman (I Heard You Paint Houses), D: Scorsese; S: DeNiro, Pacino, Pesci

Scorsese is like any other big director: he'll have a half-dozen projects in various stages of development, and when he can get a cast and a shooting schedule locked down and have the budget approved, then that's the next movie he's making.

So it might be The Irishman. Or Silence. Or his long-gestating Frank Sinatra/Dean Martin biopics, who knows.

I think Scorsese has been garbage since he started using DiCraprio as his muse. I also don't understand why people hold The Departed in such high regard when the film it was ripped off from, Infernal Affairs, was far superior.

It's a shame too because he was such a fantastic filmmaker. Now he can only win Oscars by copying other films and trying to fool people into thinking it was his idea.

Surely you jest.

The cast as currently fantasized (Deniro, Pacino, Pesci) isn't enough to get your ass in a seat?

ripped off from? They got the rights to it. It's not ripped off.

Fistful of Dollars was a ripoff of Yojimbo. Why? Leone fucking copied it without getting the rights to it. And he got in trouble for it. AK liked it but Leone never got the rights to do so. It was all "ok" in the end. Doesn't stop FoD being a dang good film.

At least Leone took the idea and spun it a bit from ancient samurai to wild west and made it his own. Scorsese basically did a Brett Ratner with The Departed from Infernal Affairs.

Is it too much to ask for a DiCaprio/DeNiro pairing in a Scorsese film?

Uh no. Leone took A LOT of the shots AK had. He didn't just take the idea he literally ripped it off. That's a difference. He took as many elements as he could and put them in the western. If you want to literally break it down. It's sooooo much more of a ripoff than The Departed. It's visual flair is much different than Yojimbo but Fistful of Dollars but it's pretty much the same damn film. At least Infernal Affairs and The Departed differ a bit more than FoD could ever wish to be to Yojimbo.

I think we're both missing the point. We're comparing this

Kurosawa was always the most western-feeling Japanese filmmaker of his generation. It's no surprise that many of his movies were turned into actual westerns. But you can't really give Leone credit for that, either, as it had been done already in The Magnificent Seven. Now Leone, like Scorsese, was a truly talented man who copied a movie but still made it his own. I feel the same way about Infernal Affairs and The Departed.

Nice try, but no cigar. It's this:

And for the record, For A Few Dollars More is one of my all time favorite films.

The top image is iconic, the second just a couple of actors having a chat.

I agree with Asmodeus that Infernal Afairs is far superior to The Departed. Scorsese has become increasingly safe in his movie choices - though still no where near as bad as Lucas!
