    When I walked in on the beginning scene I thought it was the series finale of the Jersey Shore. 5 years 3 months ago

    Gomorrah, the 2008 Italian film sensation which has since become a TV series over there, is equally difficult, perhaps more so. It definitely isn't entertaining. I thought the shot of a woman yawning near the dead middle of the film was just about the best statement that could be made at that point. Basically, Gamorrah tells the true story of the Camorra family, a crime family that holds Naples in its grip and has corrupted every level of society. In near-documentary verite style, it tells five interrelated(ish) stories about people in the mob, who want to quit, or who are eager to join. And it's totally devoid of the romanticism American mob movies indulge in. It's the nitty-gritty of the mob business. Yes, there are violent hits, but this is a mob picture as much about illegal landfills and haute couture knock-offs. I suppose what's amazing about it is the very ordinariness that makes it a little dull. Still, it grows on you as it progresses. It's just that first hour is (metaphorical) murder. 2 years 1 month ago
