Gomorrah (Gomorra) Reviews

Will Leitch
Deadspin

This might be one of those movies that are more fun to praise than they actually are to watch.

Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger

Matteo Garrone doesn't so much reinvent the gangster genre as much as he reimagines it, taking all the usual trimmings and turning them inside out.

East Bay Express

A thrillingly bleak crime pic.

What Culture

It is a full and frank indictment of a system that has not just failed but utterly decayed and is breeding more and more criminals.

Suite101.com

Thug-life fantasies here provide lures into ruthlessly complex realities and rigmaroles - slamming characters' faces into the rug before it's pulled from beneath them. The notion that anybody could be a don dies in a blaze of energy, rage and ambition.

September 24, 2010

Despite its disjointed structure, Gomorrah comes to a narrative convergence without ever actually having to bring its stories together. Each climaxes independently, yet it all feels like one piece.

Full Review Source: DCist | Original Score: 8.6/10

Window to the Movies

By fashioning its stories to get in as much impact as possible, mostly from the stark ugliness of their realities and their bold endings, the movie achieves a satisfying level of effectiveness.

Screen International

Probably the most authentic and unsentimental mafia movie ever to come out of Italy.

Movie Metropolis

Check that omerta b.s. at the door. This is all about the bottom line.

November 22, 2009

Un film à la fois lourd, tragique et hautement instructif figurant assurément parmi les plus marquants à avoir été réalisés sur le sujet.

Dicen mucho más sobre la Camorra las leyendas finales del film que las dos horas y pico que les precedieron.

Time Out Sydney

The result, while admirable, is curiously flat and unengaging.

Des Partridge
Daily Telegraph (Australia)

It is a challenging approach, and while there is suspense and action (including a spectacular car crash), there is frustration as a result of the regular cutting from one story to another.

Philippa Hawker
The Age (Australia)

We don't get to know the characters, exactly, but we experience something more interesting: we are brought into disconcerting, almost documentary proximity with the lives they lead and the worlds they inhabit.

Full Review Source: The Age (Australia) | Original Score: 4/5

Could Gomorrah and Il Divo signal the return of Italian political cinema? Here's hoping.

Courier Mail (Australia)

It's a challenging approach, and while there are some terrific moments within the film, as well as suspense and action (including a spectacularly staged car crash), there's also frustration as a result of the regular cutting from one story to another.

At the Movies (Australia)

The portrait it paints of this society in the grip of this tawdry but immensely powerful and rich organization is scary indeed.

FILMINK (Australia)

Gomorrha transcends its medium and evidences humanity at its most despicable, and rates as an unconventional and unmissable instant classic.

Tulsa World

The film's power in capturing some of the seemingly banal moments of everyday life punctuate with bang-bang fervor the human loss that accumulates later.

Urban Cinefile

The sinewy production could almost pass for documentary %u2013 if only doco makers could get such amazing access. But that's why the film has been hailed as groundbreaking. It is also heartbreaking.
