City of God

December 1, 2005

An unflinching portrayal of crime and violence in Rio’s slum, Meirelles’ movie is ultimately a life-affirming portrayal of the resilience of the human spirit. ¥The film is seductive, disturbing, enthralling _ a trip to hell that gives the passengers a great ride.’ Time Magazine.
