Comparisons to City of God might be unavoidable, but this is actually a documentary and not a "fiction" movie (although latter was based on real life of course too). What it also is, is pretty messy. It could be that you get confused while watching this, not knowing who everybody is, or what "gang" they belong too.

Still through all it's faults, the fact, that this is so close to life and death (forgive the pun), makes it worthwhile for those who are interested in those things. I watched an documentary at the Berlin Film Festival that was a bit better, but I can't remember the name right now. Advising you to look through the movies I rated, wouldn't be an easy task either.

But all in all and while sometimes it seems to drag and be repetitive, you can be thankful, if you are not in a similar situation.
