Bill The Butcher, surrounded in Martin Scorsese's Gangs Of New York. A flawed but unequivocal masterpiece that had mostly mixed reaction when it came out in 2002. I loved the ambition Scorsese brought to it all but -most of all- I adored Daniel Day Lewis' Incredible performance as The Butcher himself. He's more than likely my favourite actor working today- watch him in Nicholas Hytner's Adaptation of Arthur Miller's incendiary play The Crucible. He defines the word electric.
