    Thoughtful mafia film, not too high on action, more about the psychology behind the various members of the family, but it's worthy.

    "Black Souls" is a sluggish "thriller" that fails to engage, thrill, or do anything interesting with the atmosphere the film spends such a long time introducing you to.

    'Black Souls' is an Italian foreign language film. It's about a trio of brothers and the mafia that has been their family profession for generations. It's slow paced to a purpose which gives you an eerie feeling that something is always about the happen. The score is subtle but always on your mind whether you know it or not. A very engaging feature, due in large part to the natural lived-in characters and the nearly flawless acting. While it's not a classic, it's a darn good way to spend 103 minutes. Final Score: 7.8/10

    Just like 2007's 'Gomorrah' the film doesn't glamorise mob life and focuses on the nasty and gritty side of things. It moves at a slow pace and is very claustrophobic at times. Some great shots of rural Italy and a superb final act.

    A dark and carefully constructed family drama that draws you into the loss and sadness that are the inevitable fruits of violence and machismo. Expertly acted and staged, the film stands away from attributing glamour or sexiness to violence and shows it for what it is- an understandable but weak response to loss and grief. It never preaches or patronises, and holds you in its bleak arms gently until the end. Well worth a viewing.
