Fucky Film Review!

Gangs of New York

Martin Scorsese 2002

One of the few un-bona-fide Scorsese pics (along with BRINGING OUT THE DEAD, KUNDUN, and a couple of others).  Not to say these films are bad; they just don’t come with the Scorsese Guarantee. GANGS has some great aspects to it – D. Day Lewis as the Butcher is reason enough to see the film. But something about the movie gets away;  the set design looks a little hokey at times, and there are several scenes that are either useless or don’t really work. But D-Day is pretty special – it makes THERE WILL BE BLOOD look like he was just phoning it in.
