I’m deleting my reference earlier

I’m deleting my reference earlier today to the new Martin Scorsese film, “Gangs of New York.” I went to see it this afternoon, and it’s probably a little soon to say it’s the worst movie I’ve ever seen, but–given the talent and money lavished on it–it’s definitely among the top ten worst movies I’ve ever seen. Movie audiences, with a sixth sense I do not fathom, appear to be staying away in droves. Viewing it is quasi-Hobbesian: solitary, poor, nasty, and brutish, but long, long, long. Releasing this sickening movie during the holiday season is itself a travesty. If I had known better, I would not only have stayed away, I would have led an informational boycott against it. If you yourself avoid seeing the movie because of this post, you will owe me more than you can know…but we’re always happy to be of service.
