    Subject: CIty of God--memorable film of 2003
    Date: Apr 22, 2004
    Sender: TasneemPrevious | Next

    An absolutely brilliant film with remarkably detailed scenes and concise dialogue. The filmmakers have a penchant for making the viewer more than just an observer. Captivating.

    CITY OF GOD: BEST MOVIE OF 2003

    There are differences between a good movie and a great movie. "KILL BILL" is a good movie, regardless of all the hype hailing it as "a masterpiece". "CITY OF GOD" is a great movie.
    It's a shame the Academy didn't recognize it, but f**k 'em. They'd rather hand out Oscars to generic, feel-good dreck like "RADIO". Too bad there weren't any retards in "CITY OF GOD", we know how the Academy loves retards.
    There were a lot of characters in "CITY OF GOD" but it didn't feel as cluttered or misdirected as "ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO". The story is well-paced and everything happens at the right time. The characters feel real. You may not like the deeds that Little Ze does, but his character is so intriguing and charismatic you can't wait to see what he's going to do next.
    The author of the above review was on-point. "CITY OF GOD" is a straight classic. No doubt.
