gangs - so so script, peak cocks was the age of innocence*, weak acting with an ott day lewis and wimpy de caprio.

 

wolf - i hated this, it was glorification of a bunch of despicable, boring people rather than satire and that damn de caprio again !

 

* this is the real masterpiece from post-goodfellas scorsese, he called it it his most violent film, underneath those carefully cultured manners was a brutality that would have shocked even tommy devito.

 

very close to goodfellas for greatness.

 

 

I disagree on De Caprio, I rate him as one of the best current contemporary actors. He was excellent (at being despicable) in Wolf. I also thought Wolf was a good film, but agree that Scorsese's best work ended at Goodfellas (I gave up on Gangs of New York).
