Welcome to Episode 53, returning guests Chris (Easy Riders, Raging Podcast) and Adam (Truth and Movies – Little White Lies) are back to review Chris’s choice City of God (Cidade de Deus). The 2002 Brazilian drama from Fernando Meirelles is based on a novel by the same name that was loosely based on real events and depicts organised crime in the favelas from the end of 1960s and the beginning of the 1980s.

City of God is a dazzling piece of cinema, mixing almost documentary style story telling with disco, drug dealing, photography and revenge – often violent but also frequently sharp and funny. If you haven’t seen it don’t be put off by the two hours run time or subtitles – it breezes by.

Scores

City of God scores 3.73 overall – let down by the small screen score – but still respectable and received a lot of love from Twitter too.
