Directed by AFI Life Achievement Award honoree Martin Scorsese and edited by his longtime collaborator, AFI Honorary Degree recipient Thelma Schoonmaker, GANGS OF NEW YORK (2002) was recognized in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD in 2002, naming it among the most outstanding motion pictures of year. According to the official rationale, “GANGS OF NEW YORK is bravura filmmaking by an American master. Martin Scorsese’s epic tale moves with cinematic elegance from New York City’s Five Points to Ground Zero, and the story it tells will be a revelation to today’s audiences. Daniel Day-Lewis’ mesmerizing performance as Bill the Butcher creates one of the great screen villains of all time.”
