QUICK TAKE

Gang problems 

 

Star power: "Gangs of New York" is now streaming on Netflix. Martin Scorsese's brutal drama from 2002 featured Daniel Day-Lewis (as Bill "The Butcher"), Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Henry Thomas and Liam Neeson.

Historic look: Scorsese went to great lengths to lovingly re-create mid-19th century Manhattan for his Catholics vs. Protestants feuding, and he won praise for his historically accurate streets and buildings (though the massive set was actually built in Italy). The film was loosely based on Herbert Asbury's nonfiction book from 1927.

Elusive gold: Not surprisingly, the nearly three-hour epic was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including best picture and best director. It didn't win any. Oscar voters were enamored with a different metropolis that year, giving the best picture nod to "Chicago."
