City of God, and the chilling indifference to violence and murder

Hadn't seen it in years. Didn't really remember much about it. But damn is it a fantastic film.

An intensely gripping drama with masterful, visceral filmmaking. Even with the snappy, stylistic flourishes you could almost believe it’s a documentary due to its matter-of-fact approach. The camera is merely an observer and never a manipulative tool to bring out phony, Hollywood-style sentimentality. It portrays the careless violence with harrowing coldness. A real rush of chaos.
