Gritty, brutal and very realistically told through the stylish direction of Matteo Garrone. Not a pleasant film, it can be disturbing at times. It's a fine film, but it didn't "wow" me. Good acting.

Excessively long, tedious account about a bunch of hopeless narcissists with guns. It would have made for a wonderful 90-minute documentary. Forget the hype, but see it for the insights into that other mob and for some memorable performances.

Completely overrated. how can so many film critics get this completely wrong. the only strong point is that it has good cinematography. you know where the plot is going and don't feel a connection to anyone because of the way the story is told.

Overrated. Somewhat engaging, but not much of a payoff for investing your time. Also it's pretty confusing.

Vastly overrated. Other than the two young hoodlums it is difficult to tell who is who, what they are doing and why.
