We watched "City Of God" last night as part of our regular foreign film night. Superb film. It's one of the best foreign films I've ever seen. The story is engrossing and well told despite reading subtitles. It's not beautiful, arty or funny. It's raw, violent and real-life.
The reviews are all great. Watch it. It's a must see. And don't miss the special feature on the DVD too.
