The World Cinema Recommendation Thread!
Basically, anyone can come in here and ask for recommendations based on current favourite films, or just post any films they've seen recently that they think people should definately go see.
So to start:
For Fans of: Crime, gangster or anyone who likes some hard-hitting and thought provoking pics.
What is it?: As many of you are probably aware, Gomorrah details the actions and infleunce of one of the worlds biggest mafia organisations, the Camorra. They have massive control and power within Italy and have investments across the world (they even put money into the rebuilding of the Twin Towers).
What makes it so good?: The scope for one thing, the film concentrates on 5 sets of characters and charts the ways in which the Camorrah affect these people. Some are willing members, others are forced to work for them out of neccesity. It's a violent, bleak and fairly depressing flick, but its unquestionably gripping + eye-opening. Credit to the direction and acting aswell, this is a very accomplished crime epic.
