Leesah Sea’s review published on Letterboxd:
CITY OF GOD is a truly captivating film. The incredibly brutal subject matter is beautifully shot with love and respect shown for the real-life people the film is based on. There are so many different genres packed into this, yet it manages to ebb and flow through them all while fully maintaining the audiences’ attention. If you haven’t seen this yet, don’t sit on it any longer. Do yourself a favour, put away your phone and sit down and watch this undisturbed. It’s truly worth your full attention.
