Recognition

The Guardian Logo "Meirelles's storytelling rushes forward at a full, breathless tilt, swerving, accelerating, doubling back on itself, amplifying the roles and experiences of incidental characters."

Peter Bradshaw

Time's Magazine Logo “The film is seductive, disturbing, enthralling – a trip to hell that gives the passengers a great ride.”

Richard Corliss

The Washington Post Logo “It’s a trip to Hell and back, and testimony for embittered cynics of all that a movie can be.”

Stephen Hunter

Rolling Stone Magazine Logo “Meirelles is a world-class talent who illuminates every frame of this fresh, ferocious and indelibly moving film. City of God has the scent of a classic.”

Peter Travers
