    Oh yeah, I've seen 'City of God' too ("Awesome", as subjeero said). And 'Elite Squad' (part 1 & 2; "Amazingly Brutal" is what I thought of that. The first one particularly). And there was another movie called 'Trash' (The ending could've been better) with some street kids, Wagner Moura, Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen; so I'm guessing it's not entirely "Brasillian". Anyway; that about sums up my [email protected] list. I'll definitely give this movie a shot; 82 @ Metacritic is pretty impressive.

    Would you recommend any movies along the lines of 'City of God' and 'Elite Squad 1'?

      Definitely watch it, it's really good even though it's different from the other ones you mentioned! I really enjoy Elite Squad, I watched the first one and had to re-watch it the day after because I couldn't stop thinking about it! Some movies I can mention are Carandiru (2003), City of Men (2007) and Shredded April (2002). Though they are not too similar, I think you would enjoy them! There's also a movie called "Batismo de Sangue", which doesn't seem to have an English title, that talks about the military dictatorship Brazil went through between the 60s and 80s, and I remember it being really good! If you like documentaries, the Elite Squad director made one called "Bus 174", which won the Emmy for Best Documentary back in 2005 and helped set the tone for Elite Squad!

    The only Brazilian movie I've seen is City of God (which was awesome) and my second one is going to be this one. Thanks for the tip.
