Gomorrah

Rated NR 137 minutes 2009

Move over, Sicilian Mafia. Director Matteo Garrone’s adaptation of writer Roberto Saviano’s sensational book about the monolithic crime “systems” — drugs, haute couture, illegal waste management, etc. — of contemporary Naples and its suburbs is harder and nastier by far, mostly because the corruption is so pervasive it’s difficult to tell the “real” from the “fake” or the “official” from the “clandestine.” In feverish documentary style, we tag along with at least five groups of characters (including many non-actor hoods) in and around Scampia, north of Naples, as they cheat, steal, kill, get killed, and worse than that, poison their own land beyond repair. In the tradition of Traffic and Syriana, a world-going-to-hell movie that’s hard to put out of your mind. With Salvatore Abruzzese as Totò the young mob gofer. A tag team of six guys wrote the screenplay (137 min.).
