Gangs of New York film review opening scene
to decide who holds sway over the mid-1800s city of New York. Original Score: C, february 3, 2010, february 18, 2009. A xenophobic monologue he delivers seated by Vallon's bed, draped in a bloody Stars and Stripes, is absolutely hair-raising. Scorsese is indecisive and lost creating a world that never decides it has anything worthwhile to say. This dark, provocative 19th century epic - with its gorgeously sinister cinematography (by Michael Ballhaus) and stunning period detail - is signature Scorsese. Except he gave it so much of his brand of realism there is little there worth caring about. Worst of all, Gangs of New York achieves far too little while trying much too hard. The only reason I can imagine anyone rushing. Full Review Original Score: 4/4 May 19, 2004 Gangs is Scorsese's impassioned, elegiac portrait of a time when blows were delivered with fists, bats, and blades rather than airplanes, anthrax, or keyboard strokes; it's his look back at a lost world, his urban western. Original Score: 3/4, october 18, 2008, it's a story of such relevance to New York, to America and even to the rest of the world, that just had to be told on film with as much impact as a filmmaker can muster. Gangs defense is simply because they are unwilling, or somehow unable to admit that the Scorsese goose has stopped laying golden eggs.

Original Score:.5/4, february 9, 2006, it's never less than compelling, driven by an overwhelming, larger than life performance from Day-Lewis and by Scorsese's grandiose historical imagination. No one is developed with any personality or motivation, beyond the mere existence of their despicable, inhuman, and apparently stanley Milgram - The Perils of Obedience self-inflicted poverty. It arrives here burdened with gossip of hostilities and an awareness that there's been a lot of fiddling about, all of which gave Di Caprio time to make a Spielberg movie that's opening almost simultaneously. This is unnecessarily drawn out when we all know roughly where it's going. Daniel Day-Lewis is a joke, and does a fine job of playing that role. His child son, also predictably, swears revenge on the man who killed him, and runs off to grow old enough to stab people with a bigger knife. It's nowhere clear on the screen.
