City of God

I finally signed up for my free Netflix from last Christmas. So far, it seems cool (I've only received one DVD thus far). We'll see. I do like watching movies.

So, the first flick I got was "City of God."


City of God

I've been excited about seeing this movie for a long time. The trailer made it look like a very stylized flick with crazy camera moves. There weren't many, so it didn't feel like the movie I wanted to watch.

Drugs, violence, sex... all involving kids. Life can be very, very twisted.

The film is based on a true story, and that begs the question: What should be done about this?

It goes back to something I strongly believe: We need to be good people, not just good at what we do. Nothing will fix the problems like the ones portrayed in the film if there is not a change in who the people are.
