That movie was deep as hell. Right there next to Goodfellas. Most Def Underated. But a classic indeed it is. That shyt is off the real. everybody Dies up in that shyt. Its crazy though, you watch the movie and when its finally over (3hrs) you realise they didnt say not one word in English. hahaha You never thought of it that way huh? That movie is a fuccen Classic. I give it a 9 outta ten. but thats fucced up when they shoot that little boi. He was only like
5 years old. Some fucced up shyt right there.

This is definately one of my favorite movies. I want to pick up the DVD though. My buddy said there's an awesome documentary on it. I gotta say anyone who hasn't seen this movie, check it out.

This movie is one of my all time favourite movies. It is powerful as hell. Anyone who thinks they got it bad in there hood will probably appreciate where they live just that little bit more after seeing this.

Its got a good documentary on the DVD too about what life is really like in the favelas/shanty towns in Rio, not too dissimilar from like it is on the film.

This movie is AWESOME. I recommend it to everyone. Definately check out the DVD if you can. That documentary NW10 mentioned is incredible. It's almost worth buying just for that.

the movies was 1 of the best i've ever seen but i have a few questions about it.

1.on my cable guide it says "two young cariocas deal drugs, kill and steal". what is a cariocas?

2.lil ze was calling knockout ned a ni**er and saying strip ni**er in the club. meanwhile lil ze looked black as can be. whats the deal?

3.there seemed to be a lot of different colored people. lil ze, carrot, knockout ned, taigo, rocket, rockets friend, benny, angelica, the photographers. they were all a different shade but all lived in the city. are they all brazilian or whats the deal with all of this?

4.what 2 "friends" was my guide referring to?

5.what language was this movie spoken in?

In lots of movies like this black people refer to one another using the N-word. Same happens in the film Belly when they get some guy to strip, people tellin him to do it are african-american as is he. As for exactly why i dont know?

Yer they all Brazilian, colour dont make a difference. There are black, asian, indian and white people in the USA who were born and raised there so they are still all American. Brazil is about 50% white, 40% mixed white and black and almost 10% black.

Bene and Rocket i would have thought.

the cinematography (sp?) was also done well.
