Martin Scorsese has a message for those wanting to watch “The Irishman” on their mobiles!
Veteran Hollywood director Martin Scorsese three and a half-hour long epic “The Irishman” was released last week on Netflix. However, the Taxi Driver director does not want you to watch the film on your mobile phone, but rather on a bigger screen to have an amazing experience.
In a recent interview, Martin Scorsese said:
“I would suggest — if you ever want to see one of my pictures, or most films — please, please don’t look at it on a phone, please. An iPad, a big iPad, maybe.”
He further added:
“I’m not saying because, ‘Oh, I made it. It was an interesting narrative structure, and it got me involved each time. In a funny way, I think I made it to cover all the bases in terms of how you could watch this picture. Ideally, I’d like you to go to a theater, look at it on a big screen from beginning to end. And I know, it’s long — you gotta get up, you gotta go to the bathroom, that sort of thing, I get it — but also at home, I think if you can make a night of it, or an afternoon thereof, and know that you’re not gonna answer the phone or you’re not gonna get up too much, it might work.”
The Irishman reunited Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino after a long gap, whereas brings back Joe Pesci from a self-imposed retirement. It is garnering great reviews from both the fans of these actors as well as Netflix users around the world.
