Rail-thin teens blasting automatic weapons; a police raid on a decrepit modernist housing project; a Fellini-esque bulldozer chugging along an otherwise empty beach at sunset – these images from Matteo Garrone's unforgettable crime drama GOMORRAH will swirl in your mind's eye for days. Based on the internationally acclaimed book by Roberto Saviano who is still in hiding with a death threat on his head from the Camorrah.
