2008. Italy. Dir: Matteo Garrone. With Gianfelice Imparato. 137 min.
When the kids are laughing about how their misadventures remind them of Scarface, you’ve got a gang problem. This tough, Scorsese-approved mob saga shatters the glossy image of organized crime and reveals the very real devils at work just under the museums and churches of Napoli. The movie’s source novel ruffled so many Mafia feathers, its author is still under police protection. Sponsored by the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.
