When i first saw city of god i was blown the fuck away. The next brazillian film i was to see was carandiru, based on a massively over crowded, aid's infected piss stinking prison (although it may as well have been a slum). My opinions of the film throughout were that it was overly dramatic and lacked realism. When you get to the end of the film, those views are flipped round, as you see a fucked up bombard of brazillian police barge through the doors and shoot dead 84 prisoners. Here's a little documentary about the prison.
