Naples Bloodbath - Gomorrah review by Jawbreaker

Spoiler Alert
27/02/2009

Gomorrah is based on true events that have forced the author into hiding. First impressions are that this cannot be possible in the European Union today, where a lawless society prospers. Yet Naples is as corrupt and violent as these individual stories confirm. Where ethics and decency have been disposed of in favour of money, drugs and power. The film does not pull any punches and covers a broad spectrum of Naples society, from the young to the old and the innocent. Gritty and violent, Gomorrah is memorable but I didn’t find it to be outstanding or gripping. While the stories were original and frightening (that they are based on true events), these are rogue traders gone wrong in a unique manner. Whether that makes a fully-fledged film is open to debate, in retrospect perhaps a cutting edge documentary may have been better. Even so, Gomorrah remains a very enjoyable and brave Italian film.

Gun Law - Gomorrah review by MW

Spoiler Alert
04/07/2016

A terrifying and utterly realistic account of the lives of the desperate poor in Naples, sucked into the blood-sucking embrace of the Mafia whose murderous ruthlessness is jaw-dropping. This is not a film for the faint-hearted but as a portrayal of moral corruption and human degradation, misery and fear it is exemplary. A bleak but spellbinding movie.
