Reviews


100
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
The fingerprints of the Camorra are everywhere, this film wants us to know, and its grip is lethal.

The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
Powerful, stripped to its very essence and featuring a spectacular cast (of mostly non-professionals), Matteo Garrone's sixth feature film Gomorra goes beyond Tarrantino's gratuitous violence and even Scorsese's Hollywood sensibility in depicting the everyday reality of organized crime's foot soldiers.
91
The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
Gomorrah takes place in a world where decency can't take root and we can only watch in horror as crime overwhelms society's most vulnerable-- women, children, law-abiding citizens, and the conscientious few who want to get out of the game.
90
Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
This film never feels like copycat Americana to me. Its vision of the bleak, ruined, urban-cum-rural landscape of Naples and environs is distinctively European and postmodern, redolent of the spiritual and physical desolation Antonioni captured so memorably in "Red Desert."
80
Empire - Damon Wise
A sombre, slow, but well-paced study of organised crime in urban Naples that leaves a very grim taste in the mouth.
