Alabada por muchos, tanto por su historia y por la realización de la misma, Ciudad de Dios es de las pocas películas latinoamericanas que logran captar casi cada aspecto de la vida dentro del mundo del crimen. Muy parecido a Goodfellas o el padrino, solo que en un lugar distinto, las favelas brasileñas, y su aproximación a lo que sería estar a estos lugares es interesante.La obra posee numero... read more

“Al menos puedo entender porqué Cidade de Deus es tan aclamada como si de una obra magnánima se tratase, al fin y al cabo, tiene todo lo que me gusta de las historias sobre crimen; la pérdida de la humanidad a medida que más te vas metiendo en el mundo criminal, la gravedad de los peligros que se corren al involucrarte con toda esa gente podrida, el cómo a la larga todo ese mundillo te termina por destruir, etc.

Todos estos temas suenan realmente excelentes, y lo son, y hasta diría que genuinamente la película logra de gran manera el plasmar no solo el podrido ambiente de aquellas favelas llenas de miseria y brutalidad, sino lo que verdaderamente implicaba el pertenecer a aquellas pandillas.

La mirada que ofrece Cidade de Deus es una bastante interesante, ya que e” read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (2000's) (146 movies items)

" Notes: Honestly, I was just completely blown away and I would go as far as saying that it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. First of all, the way it was shot was really impressive. Indeed, this movie is really stylized but also quite realistic at the same time which is something rather unique, it has some complex shots and nice visuals but it remains raw at the core. But it is not one of those movies with some nice visuals but rather tedious, no, here, the story keeps you on the edge"
