Movie: The gangs of New York

I finally was to see The Gangs of New York by Martin Scorsese. I had that lying in the drawer for a long time, but somehow was never in the mood to see it.

This was a worthwhile movie. Daniel Day-Lewis gave a great performance as the butcher, and, as with most Scrosese movies, the pictures were just breathtaking on the big screen. I just wish they would have found a better actor for the main part – i just can not bring myself to like Leonardo or at least objectively admire his work. He is just not good enough to overcome this prejudice i have with him.

Nethertheless, a worthwhile addition to my movie collection.
