"Gangs of New York" airs tonight at 8/7c

Tonight at 8/7c we’re showing Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “Gangs of New York,” an epic so sprawling it actually rivals R.Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” for sprawlingingness. The film is set in Civil War-era Manhattan and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a poor little orphan named Amsterdam who grows up with a chip on his shoulder. The name of the chip? Bill ‘The Butcher’ Cutting, a brutal American-born Protestant played by the always on Daniel Day-Lewis who killed Amsterdam’s dear old dad (Liam Neeson). Amsterdam sets out on a mission to avenge his father’s death and finds that Bill the Butcher has risen in power to become a powerful crime boss and corrupt political figure … and perhaps too passionate and charismatic a man to murder. As Bill the Butcher, Day-Lewis delivered another one of his trademark intense performances where he fully immerses himself in the role and basically becomes the character. It’s an awe-inspiring feat that’s what fans have come to expect of him. Can’t wait to see him win another Academy Award for his portrayal of “Lincoln.”

Here are five of our favorite Daniel Day Lewis movies:

5. “My Beautiful Laundrette”

4. “My Left Foot”

3. “Gangs of New York”

2. “Lincoln”

1. “There Will Be Blood”

“Gangs of New York” airs tonight at 8/7c; Saturday, Feb. 16 at 8/7c; Saturday, Feb. 16 at 11:30 PM ET; and Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 8/7c
