Gangs of New York (2002)

We are in Scorsese’s imagination now,
Loosely based on late, 19th century New York city,
Where colorful characters, gangs and violence,
Rule without fear or pity.

Young Amsterdam Vallon (Leo),
is on a hero’s quest of revenge,
befriending his enemy,
and sleeping in the lion’s den.

It’s a tumultuous time for Americans,
Experiencing war and growing pains,
And after the big dust up,
there’s no telling who will remain.

Stylistic, unique and wholly original,
This historic film electrifies the past
With Scorsese’s touch and this talented cast,
It’s a story that’s bound to last.

Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans (2015)

The biggest movie star in the world,
set out to make the best racing film ever made,
and although he had no script,
He shot at Le Mans for over 90 days.

He banged two girls a day,
and even wrecked his Porsche,
until the studio shut him down
and a real script was forced.

McQueen said that tough shoot
is what contributed to his cancer,
but to his questions of identity,
racing was the answer.
