  • Gangs of New York

    2002. USA/Italy. Directed by Martin Scorsese. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Cameron Diaz, Liam Neeson. Ferretti’s fifth collaboration with Scorsese is an epic portrait of vengeance and corruption set in mid-19th-century New York. Shot almost entirely in Cinecittà studios, Ferretti’s sprawling recreation of Lower Manhattan’s Five Points neighborhood is among his most distinguished creations. The Chinese Pagoda, Satan Club, and beer house interiors inspired the writer and critic Luc Sante to comment that the designer had succeeded where history had fallen short in producing evidence of the spaces occupied by the period’s immigrant lower class. Ferretti’s crumbling sets still stand on the closed studio lot in Rome. 167 min.
