Two words: gritty realism (think 'The Wire'). It strips all of the glamour that you come to expect from a Gangsta film. The narration seems frantic and loose, which will turn some people off. However, its a hard hitting film that highlights the impact on a place controlled by the Camorra. I can't call it a masterpiece, but it's certainly among the best of this year. A more detailed review is coming.
