Abridged Book Description

Martin Scorsese's 2002 brutal but memorable epic has its setting in 19th-century New York, specifically Lower Manhattan in 1846, but in feeling may as well be the Middle Ages... Ambitiously designed to show where modern America has come from, Gangs of New York is a film that will grow in importance with passing time.
