    Convincing cinema verite but wandering, indulgent...at times random-feeling succession of non-sequiturs.

    Movie murdered the gomorrah and also the mafia. If you already know how the mafia works, then you don't have to see this movie because it only contains how they operate.

    I started to read the book and then decided to watch the movie On Demand. What a mistake! If you don't read the book first, you will have no clue what is going on. The only thing that saved the rating from being a zero was the acting.

    A sombre, slow, but well-paced study of organised crime in urban Naples that leaves a very grim taste in the mouth.

    The five interwoven narratives in this visceral but disciplined and beautifully acted movie show to devastating effect how ordinary men and women -- and especially vulnerable boys desperate for masculine role models -- get caught up in the seductive violence and are ruthlessly destroyed by the network's hardened henchmen.

    The fingerprints of the Camorra are everywhere, this film wants us to know, and its grip is lethal.
