Reading a review of the movie after it was presented at a NYC festival (it will also be presented here in a few days at the film festival) I learned that Scorsese had first planned to do a movie based on this:



So I was curious and started to read as soon as it was delivered not intending to really finish it today, just to have a general idea of what it was about. And couldn't stop, had to read it at a sitting. If somebody else will read it will understand why Scorsese was intrigued by it , actually some of the events were probably inspired by some of his movies. I suspect though that he went for the true crime book in the end because the finale is too banal, you know it from dozens of other novels and movies. Still I think that it makes for a wonderful thriller and one of the best mafia novels you may happen to come by. 9/10

Interview at the NYFF with Scorsese, de Niro, Pacino, Pesci, and producers

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=e4-Ko2KyPko

I only watched the first few minutes; something is wrong with Pesci, not sure if he is hard of hearing or what; when the interviewer asks him a question, he needs to have someone repeat it for him, and then he gives like a one-word answer.

Gonna be a Netflix viewing for me I think.

Sorry, Drink, Mrs. Jenkins just wouldn't wait. I told her I'd promised to go with you. She told me I had a difficult decision to make, and I'd better make the right choice, or there would be many cold nights in my future. I hope you'll understand.

I walked up to the Balasco box-office at 3pm to buy tickets for the 7pm show and had no trouble scoring Orchestra center seats 9 rows from the screen. I thought, huh, there must not be much demand. When I returned at 6:30 there was a line stretching down the block and a woman circulating telling everyone the show was a sell-out. One guy in line asked the woman if she could give a quick review. She said, "You kiddin'? It's Maaa-tee!" "That's the review?" "Yeah. Two words."

Inside there were people moving about with some kind of newspaper parody with the headline: "Where Is Hoffa?" Apparently these were available downstairs next to the concessions and toilets. I went down and the place was all promo'd up: there were 4 phony phone booths and two phony newspaper dispensers. You opened the dispensers and pulled out a copy of The Irishman Daily, an 8-page edition claiming to be from August 1, 1975. In addition to "articles" and "ads" that tied in to the events of the movie, but there were also what appears to be actual pieces from back in the day: a story that Billy Martin was coming to manage the Yankees, a notice that the MTA would be raising fares to 50 cents, an announcement that Springsteen's new album Born To Run would be released Aug. 25.  Good fun.

The phony phone booths were set up with a video screen. When you stepped into the booth and lifted the receiver you heard dialog from the film while images of the movie played. People were posing in the booths while their friends snapped pictures--losers, every one. On a table there were 5 different 2-sided lobby cards available to cadge. Hey, all this extra promo material and the tickets were the standard NYC $15!

I tapped my radiator (before a 3 and half hour movie, natch) and headed back to my seat. A good thing as there was no intermission. There were two trailers and then they got right into it. Three-and-a-half hours later we finally got to the opening credits. The lights came up and I turned to a red-eyed Mrs. Jenkins and said, "That was a loooooong film, eh?" She did not reply. We staggered out of the theater and found ourselves back on 44th and 6th Ave. It was only 4 blocks to Grand Central Terminal. There was an express waiting when we arrived. We were home before midnight, and we were exhausted.
