The final part of Barney’s magnum opus exceeds every possible expectation: a epic journey through the history of American gangsterism, involving the construction of New York’s Chrysler Building, secret societies of Masons, hardcore punk rock (Agnostic Front in a show-stopping cameo) and body-mutation. Packed with set-pieces of astonishing virtuosity and sophistication, it’s not only a staggering achievement in art cinema, but one of the major works of the year. One thing is certain: you will not be the same afterwards.
