Movie: City of God
This film reminded me a litle of Kill Bill -- lots of bodies. It never really made Rio seem glamorous. It never really made me want to go there, or try drugs, or be a tráfico (dealer). But it was engaging -- addictive.
One review wonders why it only gets an R rating. There was even enough sex -- how long ago that hotel scene seems -- for that too topple over into the extreme. I think the special feature that talks with police officers (the Rio Chief of Police as one), dealers, and residents gives us the answer of the why. The war of drugs... we could stop the flow of guns if we wanted. Hopefully we will before they flow into our neighborhoods.
