GomorraA contemporary take on crime mobs and the lives of people they affect, Gomorra exposes the inner workings of Italy’s criminal underbelly with tales of ultra-violence and deaths. In fact, the movie itself is anchored on violence it begins and ends in quick, successive deaths. The film explores how mob groups have permeated even the most basic fabric of domestic life, with elders cashing in on the lucrative drug trade and human smuggling, among others, with the younger ones finding themselves lured to the appeal of sex, machine guns, and drug money. The result is almost always never appealing, though. The extreme nonchalance to death in these parts reflects the value for life afforded to anyone threatening to disrupt the status quo.
