Gomorra

Posted in Books, Films, Outings by nicolarowlands on October 17, 2008

Set in the provinces around Naples, where the crime organization known as the Camorra runs the everyday ins and outs of society the film is beautifully shot without seeming intentionally ‘gritty.’  The characters are real, the backdrop is real, and the storylines are perfect glimpses at parts of the world’s clockwork-the ‘logical-yet-illogical extension of free-market capitalism’- that are often too complicated to find a place in perhaps frivolous ‘arthouse’ flicks.

Long, but a must-see. And perhaps a must see-again for me.
