  • "City Of God" appreciation thread

    I only saw this film last Thursday. And damn, this is one of my favourite films already. It's fantastic. If you haven't seen it I strongly reccomend it

    City of God is amazing. Slept-on as fuck, one of the all-time great movies. I'm with Chrizz...if you haven't seen it then check it out as soon as you can.

      I agree, I was totally impressed after seeing it. I thought a few scenes were too violent but it's still one of the best movies 2003 and i'd highly reccomend it!
      .. and they said I'm not a fighter.

        Yeah. I'm not easily shocked but the scene where Lil Ze shoots the kids on the foot and then kills one of them. Wow. The kids are crying and everything. Great acting. Great film.

            ^What it does extremely well is balances the violence, with the story and the message it delivers. It doesn't descend into mindless violence (violence for the sake of violence), or a gore-fest. It doesn't take it too far, it just adds to the impact.

              ya, for all who havent seen it..go and watch

              another recommendation: la haine (french movie, in english its: hate)

              also no real actors just people from the neighbourhood like in city of god

                I've been dying to see this movie. I've heard nothing but great things about it. Considering it's ranking at imdb.com ( http://imdb.com/title/tt0317248/ ), I know it's gotta be a great film. There's only two theatres that were and still are carrying it in Michigan, and both are at least an hour away from me. So I've been contemplating, is it worth the drive? Maybe... but I think I'll have to settle for waiting till it comes to DVD. You Europeans get a lot of the good movies first.

                      from what i saw of it thru MTV and E! when they were talking a lot about its best director nomination, i think that it would be a really good movie to see, and when i get the chance, i'll prolly check it out.

                        it's a very realistic movie with real people, instead of actors playing a roll
