Fernando Meirelles worked mostly with amateur actors from such camps. Leaving them to improvise to a large extent succeeded in creating this atmosphere of realism that underlies the entire film and creates a sense documentary. The way they edited the footage and connects the stories of heroes over 30 years is remarkable. More impressive, however, are scenes of battle that the originality and imagi... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: November (30 movies items)

"November 11 "You need more than guts to be a good gangster. You need ideas." Wow, what a hell of a movie. The storytelling in this movie is phenomenal and it is just tells the story of what it was like to live in Rio de Janeiro back then flawlessly. Just the way it shows the cruelty of the real world is done better than pretty much every other American film. It is a masterpiece of cinema and it definitely lives up to the hype."
