Pac-Man is in Tron
City Of God
Although the 2014 World Cup may have depicted otherwise, Rio de Janeiro isn’t the most hospitable of places. Adapted from author Paulo Lins’ semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, City of God follows a young boy named Rocket as attempts to skirt the drugs, gang violence, and crime plaguing the Brazilian slums he calls home for three decades. It’s both breathtaking and terrifying, with excellent character development, camerawork, and authenticity.
Silence of the Lambs
Described as the ‘last stop at the bottom of the world’ by some of its 6,000 or so hapless and homeless residents, Los Angeles’ Skid Row is a grim circus of pimps, drug dealers, hustlers and prostitutes. For most of the men and women sleeping and wandering the downtown streets of the City of Angels the idea of divine intervention is as distant as the glimmering lights of Mullholland Drive and the Hollywood Hills. Their stories are easy to ignore, which is what inspired one documentary filmmaker to brave the violent, tent filled sidewalks to reveal life for what it is on the mean streets of America’s second city. Director Shanks Rajendran has really taken guerrilla filmmaking to a whole another level.. This documentary is a expose of skid row – the full 100 minutes. It’s raw, uncut and thrilling.
