Daniel Day Lewis's acting in this movie is by far the best around.

    These cuts are leaving creases. Trace the scars to fit the pieces, to tell the story, you don't need to say a word.
  • What????

    You need to go get this movie to own.
    In my top five best!

    Awesome.

    For some reason I was listening to Yield while watching it, and Do the Evolution came on right when the riot started. Just perfect timing. It was an awesome soundtrack to that scene.

    Then I tried pairing the two again when I watched it a second time and realized I was a jackass.

    this whole area down here is one historic site after the other

    but that intersection that i was talking about was labeled the five points because it looks like sort of like this * 5 different directions meeting in the middle

    i know the graveyard but i dont know the name

    its freaky because most of the headstones are blank (being so old )

    but again thats common down here

    Wiki~~


    Between 1885 and 1895, slum clearance efforts (promoted in particular by Jacob Riis, famed author of How the Other Half Lives) succeeded in razing Five Points and re-purposing the land—a pyrrhic victory in that the masses of the indigent simply moved to the nearby Lower East Side.[citation needed] What was Five Points is today covered mostly by large city and state administration buildings known collectively as Foley Square, plus Columbus Park, Collect Pond Park and various facilities of the New York City Department of Corrections clustering around lower Centre Street. The corrections facilities are the most direct link to the neighborhood's past, as the infamous Tombs Prison, which housed many a Five Points marauder from 1838 on, stood near the site of the current "City Prison Manhattan" at 125 White St.

    The most enduring description of the neighborhood was penned by Charles Dickens in his 1842 work “American Notes”. As he strolled about Manhattan in his first visit to the United States he did not shrink from the worst areas of town. His account of the filth and wretchedness characterizing so much of the Five Points was balanced by an admiring description of the patrons of Almack's. [4]

    The Irish were treated like SHIT when they came here. Thrown into a ghetto like situation where the uppity folks uptown would go joy-riding with their bodyguards to see how the shit lived.

    i have to say, i don't know why this movie was ignored and the departed praised to the heavens. i prefer gangs of new york. it was a dynamite movie and a change of pace for scorcese. departed was solid, but just another gangster movie among many in his career. plus it wasn't even original. it was lifted from a foreign film plot. gangs of new york was at least adapting a historical sociological piece and creating an exciting movie out of it.
    deserve's got nothing to do with it.

    Again...my friend's Nonna told me that you are trying to get me in trouble by saying it that way. lol And it is not very good for you so I only have it when offered to me rather than suffer the embarassment of ordering it incorrectly.

    No no. Well aware of what it is, but just was remembering the story of TC ordering something from another planet when with NYPJ1
