I am a Civil War buff, so I wanted to see this movie the moment I heard it was being made. Yes, the New York Draft Riots did happen, just two weeks AFTER the Northern victory at Gettysburg, demonstrating that the outcome of the War was anything but certain, even after Lee had been forced to retreat to the south bank of the Potomac River. Today, many would find this surprising.The movie did take some license, however. There was no wholesale firing on civilians by Union soldiers. In ct, reported deaths after three days of rioting were less than onehundred. Many of the dead were randomly selected blacks, who were hanged and mutilated which was accurately depicted in the film. Today, many would also find this surprising, because the schools teach that the North was good, and the South was bad. The truth is that blacks were subjected to inhumane treatment everywhere, especially in the Nothern cities.There was also no firing by offshore naval vessels. That was artistic license. My source for all of the above is a doctoral dissertation that was published about ten years ago titled The New York City Draft Riots.The movie makes the important point that the North had run out of home grown manpower to fight the South. Had it not been for Irish and German volunteers through , and black volunteers in , the North would have sued for peace. The Democratic Platform promised to bring the War to a swift and speedy conclusion.Bravo to Scorsese for bringing all of this to light. In the meantime, the movie is about twenty minutes to long. The brothel scenes, the uptown scenes, and some of the scenes in the catacombs struck me as slow and superfluous. On the other hand, the street scenes and the scenes of the random gangs of which I wish there were more were glorious.One thing Scorsese left out, however The mountains of animal and human waste in the streets! Not long after his movie was released, the History Channel produced a documentary on the Five Points area, and it is staggering to consider the tons and tons of animal and human waste piling up in the streets, and the thousands of gallons of urine running in the gutters. There were old photos of waste in the streets stacked six feet high. Needless to say, innt mortality in such a fetid environment was about . Scorsese leaves this out, and there is scarcely a horse in the movie.DayLewis does a superb job with a character that is unevenly developed. He is a homicidal thug in the beginning, a menacing, but somewhat benign, presence in the middle, and a psychotic killer in the end. It isnt really clear why he vacillates the way he does. Bipolar, I guess. DiCaprio proves he can act, and he exudes a manliness he did not possess in earlier films. Diaz turns in a credile performance. The cast of thousands adds a nice touch to the film.I would never say this is a great film, but it certainly is worth a look. Kudos to Scorsese for the herculean effort, and a tip of the kepi for the poetic ending, which reminded me of the ending in s San Francisco.
