In a film career that dates back to the 1960s, there isn’t a lot that Martin Scorsese hasn’t done: He’s directed dramas, comedies, biographies, documentaries, thrillers, television episodes, and even music videos. But with The Irishman, Scorsese is doing something he’s never done before — making a movie to be aired by an online streaming service. While The Irishman did get a short theatrical window for awards purposes, it will be available exclusively on Netflix. When we spoke to Scorsese, he acknowledged that the way we get our entertainment is changing quickly — so quickly, he’s not afraid to call it a revolution.
