If you’ve never seen the 2002 movie Gangs of New York, do yourself a solid and make it happen. Featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Cameron Diaz, Liam Neeson in a non-Taken role and all masterfully directed by Martin Scorsese, it’s truly worthy of all it’s acclaim.
Set in 1846, the title is self-explanatory. It’s about gangs in New York fighting for and protecting their turf.
There is still a bloody and brutal gang war going on in New York. One that has spanned years and shows no sign of stopping.
