Subject:        Shakespeare Reference in Gangs of New York

It's brief. A character who is an Irish barber says to Leonardo di
Caprio's character after he (Leo)  prevents an assassination:  "That was
quite Shakespearean.  Do you know who Shakespeare is?"  I wasn't sure if
it was meant as an in-joke, given Leo as Romeo, or not.
