Storyline

Rio de Janeiro. September, 2008. Three men stalk the gloomy back-alleys of the city's notorious slums. Spiderman, a 28-year-old drug lord, embarks on a routine patrol through the shadowy streets of Coréia, the sprawling slum he controls. Inspector Leonardo Torres, a muscle-bound operative from Rio's drug squad, inches through the alleys of another shantytown, shots ringing out around him. And Pastor Dione, an evangelical preacher intent on ending Rio's drug conflict, trawls the slums for lost souls. With unprecedented access to some of Rio's most wanted men, Dancing with the Devil in the City of God tells the story of Rio's drug war through the eyes of three men locked into one of the bloodiest urban conflicts on earth. Written by Jon Blair and Tom Phillips

Christian propaganda in a **** hole
6 December 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The images are valuable because the people doing the reporting got to see where tourists with iPhones don't get.

What makes everything depressive is the life of those people. They are poor. And they want to survive. There is no education. Only all sort of psychopaths running around with weapons and armored cars. In that place doctors do not go. Educators do not go. Nobody who has every made it seems to go there unless that person wants to kill, rape or maim. So on top of all of this reason is thrown out of the window the minute it is detected. Religion, imaginary friends, blocks and blocks turned into an insane asylum. And than you find out the source is outside the asylum. A general with a nice job, a nice pension set aside for him, a nice car and many other advantages comes to open up the roads than he goes back to his large house with a well paid family. If only the money of these leeches would have been invested in the community and the murderers would be left to find a honest job and pay for their own pension plan, maybe things would be different.
