4 July 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

because, at the first sigh, nothing could be new. after many films about gangsters, crimes, South Italy, for the viewer must be clear the entire story. Gomorrah is an exception. for many reasons. first, because it is a real admirable work. then, because it is more than a story about murder and victims but a precise perspective about a large and complex mechanism. not the last, because it is the portrait of society as a collection of masks, sides and silences. and this does it more a support for reflection than entertainment in ordinary sense. the exploration of a huge labyrinth. in the middle of spider web.
