City of God

City of God ★★★★½

Film Club #21

This was one of the most captivating movies I’ve ever seen. I was immediately absorbed into this story and I couldn’t look away even when faced with the brutality and violence in this story. 

I like that unlike most of the other gangster or mob stories I’ve seen, this one never feels glamorous or inviting. It is grim and dirty and deeply sad. I really like the choice of the narrator because seeing this story through the eyes of a spectator gave us a sort of arial view of everyone instead of being pulled into one side. 

Brilliant film, I loved it.
