anyone seen CITY OF GOD??

Recommended Posts

the movies pretty fucking sick. whats even better is the documentary "news from a personal war" which is in the DVD extras. it definately rearragned my mindset on a few things. the slums of brazil make the slums of america look like a playland. all these "gangstas" in the US live a peachy life compared to these kids over there. in a way im jealous because over there i could tote around a AK47 at 14 years old and be dead before i have to face the 9-5 american life. shit these kids were packing m-16s and a gang of shit. good movie, recommend to all. get the dvd the documentary is pretty ill, or maybe its on youtube.

I bet I was the first on 12oz to see this movie. One of the first days of its original theatrical release.

 

And this must be the thirtieth thread on this, for real.

what made you think brazil was better than anywhere else in s. america?

it's the same story anywhere on the content. santiago in chile is probably the safest city on the continent and there are still barrios there you never, ever want to go to.

I cried whilst watching this movie, not.

 

Pretty interesting, I wonder if all of what they say is true. You must remember the bias of a film director, is well beautiful in all shapes and forms.
