Netflix channeled its inner “Blu-Ray by mail” past and is releasing a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman.
I have watched The Irishman three times since its release and I think it’s, so far, the best movie of the year. It’s hard to imagine making such a sprawling epic. Now, you don’t have to. You can just watch some behind-the-scenes featurettes on the movie and see how it’s done.
You see, Netflix is channeling its past delivery service, but this time they’re digitally bringing the special features to your front door.
While Roma marked the first time that the The Academy took Netflix seriously, awarding that film with a Best Director Oscar and a nomination for Best Picture, The Irishman hopes to replicate that success. And Netflix is doing so with a full-frontal assault on the industry with Scorsese’s latest gangster epic. By the time they’re done, they’ll have to drop some weapons into the Schuylkill River.
