Watch Gangs of New York - Alternative Versions.
You'd think Scorcese has bitten a bit more than he could possibly chew,
time. Well, he didn't. Gangs of new York is not an "epic masterpiece" and
ain't that because I seriously doubt the directors aim was that. It's a
great movie in it's own account, but you have to watch it in the right
The plot: Tight enough and well paced, with a couple of lows (expected
three-hour film) but generally it comes out pretty neat. Some may find it
disturbing, as it contains extreme violence and it does not portray an
America of happy workers, even happier slaves, benevolent rich and just
authorities - instead, it portraits the true 1860 society. Definitely not
for those who like their films with plenty of sugar on the
The epic and the drama: Well, basically the film is the story of two men.
Around them things evolve and a brave new world comes forth - but we only
get to watch snapshots of that world. Until the last sequence, that is
the whole city "explodes" (in some occasions literally...) and the
are being covered in blood, and the two aspects (the main story and the
events of the era) are being tied together in the same continuum.
At the same time, the director attempts to portrait the whole birth and
growth of the United States, in a kind of parabole, but without loosing
focus on the main story and the surrounding. Scorsese dives deeply into
psychology of his heroes, without giving out any explanation of their

are literally streams of blood, hacking, slashing, crushing - even some
action movie fans (hey dude, look, he smashed his head with that thing...
cool, man!") might find some parts of the film interesting. The last
sequence is visually astounding, and it's by it's own account a reason to
watch this film over and over again... if you got the stomach to actually
cope with the disturbing images, that is.

Truly, with this performance, they should give him the Academy award. He
portrays the vile "Butcher" in a way few would be able of, and he adds

New York, New York: Scorsese gets involved in something that compares to
previous work the way a fancy little sports car compares to a huge truck:
grandioso film of epic proportions and of great ambition. He does
believe. But this film shall not be acknowledged universally, because
is too much violence, corruption, lack of the good old white vs black
vs evil, I mean) concept and does not sweeten the pill in any way. It's
disturbing and raw, and it's a great. It's not a political film - in
the director usually picks a stance, a "true" hero, an opposing view, and
builds upon those. In this case, the director is truly endistancemented
keeps that distance, even from his "hero". There are no "good" people in
that movie, all are acting like chess pieces in a predetermined way, but
the same time they try to burst out and do their own.
The verdict: A fabulous film, which is going to be recognized for such in
