Whether I’m seeing a film for the first time or reliving something 21 years after its release, it’s always fun to look back at cinema history with a modern perspective on Drinking With. Last month’s episode happened to be the former of the two as we tackled the Martin Scorsese classic Gangs of New York from 2002. I had never seen it prior to our recording, and upon watching it, I couldn’t have been happier that we chose it.
Sure, you may take issue with Cameron Diaz’s accent and overall performance in the film, and you’d be right to do so. Fair game. But, that’s about where my nitpicks end for what I would consider an all time classic. I loved the vibes, the ensemble, the cinematography, and all of that stuff. Most of all, it’s yet another hard-hitting classic performance from Daniel Day-Lewis that I just can’t shake to this day. It’s no wonder some folks call that man the best to ever do it. Settle in with a nice toasty beverage and fire up our conversation about this film to get the thoughts of Steven McCash and Brandon Vick on Gangs of New York to go along with mine.Listen to “Ep. 47: Drinking With…Gangs of New York” on Spreaker.
