If you’re looking for proof that the Hollywood paradigm is shifting, consider The Irishman. Some are saying it’s director Martin Scorcese’s best movie ever. It’s already generating a ton of Oscar buzz. It’s got a first-rate cast, toplined by Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Anna Paquin, and Joe Pesci. And it’s a Netflix movie. It took The Irishman to reunite Scorcese and De Niro after nearly 25 years; at a press event, the two legends talked about how the collaboration came together.
