5 Martin Scorcese films you can stream right now

The Irishman is Here. Here Are 5 Other Scorsese Films You Can Stream Today


The Irishman is one of the most highly anticipated movies of this year–and for good reason. 

Directed by the iconic Martin Scorsese, the film’s full of household movie star names, including Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. And though it’s full of stars and talent, that’s not the only reason why it’s generating a ton of buzz.

The Irishman, a crime drama, is ditching the traditional movie release for a different strategy. The film, a Netflix original, is only showing in select theatres until it’s released on the streaming platform on November 27 (Mostly so they can qualify for movie awards). Some say Netflix is leaving millions on the table by doing this, but considering a download of the film at a local theatre went “missing” last week, it’s hard to say it’s such a bad idea. 

If you’re ditching the theatre and waiting for The Irishman to premiere on Netflix instead, there are plenty of other films by Martin Scorsese available to stream to hold you over.

Here are five Scorsese films you can stream today:

1. Taxi Driver
