Reviews

“A considerable achievement, a revisionist history linking the birth of American democracy and American crime.”
– Roger Ebert 

“Such ambition is rare in American movies, and rarer still is the sense of tragedy and contradiction that Mr. Scorsese brings to his saga. There is very little in the history of American cinema to prepare us for the version of American history he presents here… Mr. Scorsese’s bravery and integrity in advancing this vision can hardly be underestimated.”
– A.O. Scott, The New York Times 

“The result reverberates on the screen with a deadly force and fury more intense than anything Mr. Scorsese has yet achieved on the meanest and most beloved streets he could imagine or recall.”
– Andrew Sarris, The Observer
