City of Men

Rated NR 2008

Like the 2002 Brazilian wild-youth pic City of God, this live-wire 2007 narrative follows armed gang-bangers on their war missions to take and retake territory in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Unlike that film, though, Paulo Morelli’s bloody adventures of Wallace, Ace, Midnight, and the rest take a hand-held, documentary-style approach for maximum shock value, balanced with the realistic poignancy Brazil is famous for. Starring Douglas Silva and Darlan Cunha, and written by Elena Soarez and director Morelli (110 min.).
