another xmas present i watched xmas night.
Gangs of New York.
Daniel Day nailed his performance as Bill the Butcher.
Great sets. i find the time period of this movie very intiguing. real mishmash of oldey timey and new school anachronisms.
the fact that it's a Scorsese gang film and only has 2 or 3 gunshots (army exluded) is entirely new ground.
these characters are barely one step up from "eat thine enemy". savage and savagely rewarding fare.
