A gangster film for the globalized, corporate world, Gomorrah is nasty, brutish, and a little over two-hours long. Much like Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, Matteo Garrone's film is based heavily in the facts of organized crime in Naples, and takes a macro approach to the proceedings by following a number of characters related to the nefarious web in various ways and at different levels.
The chilly detachment of the camera as it documents the lives of low-level wannabe bosses, a tailor with mob ties, a waste management specialist, and a handful of others creates a creeping feeling of dread that lingers long after the movie is over. Hard to keep your head up in a world so rotten with corruption.
