Gangster Movies

| | Comments (2)

I so don't get them. Actually what I don't get is how come they rate so highly on IMDB (can you tell I've been working through some of my unseen list in the IMDB top 250?). Watched City of God tonight. I wouldn't put it at #17 of the best movies of all time. Although I'd rate it a lot higher than the Godfather movies which were boring and next to impossible to follow. I just didn't get them. Can someone tell me what I'm missing?

City of God is definitely up there at #17. I found it at unbelievable film and watched it about five times - try doing that with any of your run of the mill hollywood flicks.

The Godfather trilogy is again, wonderfully created. No. 3 not so much, but 1 and 2 are epics that have everything a good film needs. Great story, wonderful camera work, interesting characters all played by top actors. It's still one of my all time favourites.

I agree with you. I would rather watch the Swamp thing any day over a gang movie. MAybe they resonate with US city people?
