1001 Movies Club - Gangs Of New York (2002)
#1000. Gangs Of New York (2000)
Why It's In The Book: "Martin Scorsese's 2002 brutal but memorable epic has its setting in 19th-century New York, specifically Lower Manhattan in 1846, but in feeling may as well be the Middle Ages. The result of three decades of research inspired by Herbert Asbury's 1928 book of the same name, Gangs Of New York is unique in its depiction of the era. its visual imagery, as well as the persecution endured by the city's immgrants, in accurate, although the deaths ans amopunt of bloodshed is overdramatized for effect... As perhaps the final phase in Scorsese's overweening interest in urban violence, the unusual period setting is at least as arresting as the story itself... Day-Lewis's characterisation of The Butcher is riveting. Ambitiously designed to show where modern America has come from, Gangs Of New York is a film that will grow in importance with passing time." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Klaus Ming - 9/10
"stunning photography and [a] frighteningly realistic performance by Daniel Day-Lewis more than
makes up for the syrupy and largely unnecessary romantic plot"
Movie Guy Steve - 9/10
"Despite its near three-hour running time, at no time does Gangs of New York drag or cause me to lose interest."
Adolytsi - 8/10
"The one thing that immediately jumps out at us from Gangs of New York is style."
Oilar - 8/10
"The true highlight of the film is the final scene. The riot is brilliantly depicted and we watch New York crumble as the news wires are delivered."
Sunny D - 8/10
"Combining two movies into one requires some stitching at the seams, and I think the seams become pretty visible in spots, and once that happens all the amazing tracking shots and historically accurate recreations of the architecture of Five Points seem like so much artifice, and the film ceases to be something transcendent that can sweep you up in it."
Alyson - 7/10
"Gangs of New York had a good ten nominations on Oscar night, but came home empty handed, and I have to agree."
Michaël Parent - 7/10
"Gangs of New York is the Martin Scorsese picture that Harvey Weinstein wanted to produce to win many Oscars and be the ultimate David O. Selznick."
Nicolas Krizan - 7/10
"Scorcese's lavish and mammoth fresco of freedom, immigration, and prejudice is an impressive production that – sadly enough – deteriorates swiftly into little more than excessive and pointless
Jay Cluitt - 6/10
"There's so much floor-spitting it's a wonder everyone doesn't have to walk around in wellington boots."
