Michael Corleone was not just a character in the novel The Godfather, but there are dozens of Michael who lived and died outside the law circle in a country that is the strongest in the world, one of them is Frank Sheeran, who provides Martin with an exceptional account of sixty years not only from the age of Sheeran but from the age of America The same 200-year-old looks as if he used a microscope to film the film and not the movie camera to give us an explanation of a long and invisible aspect of American culture and lifestyle not just for us but for many Americans who may not have known that Sheeran was bound Life or that someone is calling Sheeran and that he managed their lives behind the scenes as often.

 

I have been watching the Oscars while I'm trying to write this article on Irishman. I was astonished, as I saw Korea's poor and millers snooping on Hollywood's rich, and grabbing the prizes, which I thought were going to my favorite director (Martin Scorsese).

 

Well, I am disorganized now, and I would like to offer my first congratulations and greetings to the Oscar-winning Korean intruder who stunned the world this year, but I am determined to go ahead with writing my article on the movie "Irish Man", which in my opinion is the best of the third millennium films, He is the most mature of organized crime movies.

 

(Martin Scorsese), one of the most important cinematic minds in the world, known for his constant passion, was punished for shedding light on the dark sides of the American dream. Despite this passion, he had to return empty-handed from Oscars, this year.

Let us shed some light on the movie "Irish Man", which may be the true cornerstone of organized gang movies, even compared to films like "Godfather" and "Good Companions" !! Do you think we are going to watch a classic movie about the rise and fall of a mafia gang member ?? Well, it would have been, if his director had been someone other than (Martin Scorsese).

 

"Irishman" is a drama story told by Frank Sheeran, on the verge of death. It is a story that includes many feelings of remorse, a sense of guilt, lack of forgiveness, and the effect of his actions on others, especially his daughter; Who embodied her character, Anna Paquin. The director (Scorsese) who challenges his critics, who think that he makes wonderful films, about people, no one wants to know anything about them, by repeating a simple phrase very amazing, which is "Who am I to pass judgment on others ??" He brilliantly ran a magnificent acting symphony between two schools in acting, the Abstaining Plain and Systematic Representation; Where (Scorsese) told us in this film, a story that takes place during six decades, using his absolute capabilities to narrate, and his skill in using modern technologies, to restore his stars to the time of youth !!

 

In short, with this movie, Martin, Dinero and Al Pacino prove to us that they are alive, more than ever !!

 

Coppola took 3 films and 10 and a half hours to tell the story of the Corleone over the past 50 years in the series The Godfather, but Martin tells us 60 years of the story of Frank Sheeran in one movie over the course of 3 and a half hours, without disturbing the development of characters or events, quite the opposite. We find that every scene was built without gasping or speeding, using modern techniques to restore his youth to the age of youth, techniques that could have been the reason for Marlon Brando receiving two Oscar awards for the spiritual father, and not one in the case of this technology was present at this time when it was He will embody Don Corleone's character in Parts One and Two Neither replace it with Robert Dinero in the second part.


It seems to me as if we were seeing the Godfather again, but not from the perspective of Coppola, who was a young man in his thirties when he directed the Godfather, but from the viewpoint of Michael Corleone in his last days before his death alone after all those years in exile in Italy.


Irishman deals with the life story of a gangster with a thin layer of meditation Martin may have gained from his previous experience in the movie Silence.

 

I am not saying this out of loyalty to Scorsese cinema, but it is the truth, the Irishman is the most mature of all organized crime movies ever. Irishman confirms doubts about Martin Scorsese's new religious orientation as Scorsese raised doubts about his religious orientation through his previous film Silence, as it seemed to me that he yearned for his Italian Catholic origins and he was a child

 

He dreams of becoming a monk in a temple before he rebels and turns into a creative cinematographer and directs several films in which he denies his faith, such as the last seduction of Christ, but near the end line, Scorsese feels nostalgic for that old faith and is what he promoted In the other films, Silence and Irishman
