Suburra (2015)
Apocalypse...Roman Style.

Italian cinema is alive and well. Saying this is time well spent is an understatement. If you like dark movies that explore the absolute demon inside all of us then this is for you. The movie really is a masterpiece. The movie moves like a 24 hour road race. There is no bright light at the end of the tunnel. You know that all these characters are headed to unhappy end since the movie counts you down to the apocalypse. But the way the movie takes you there is what I love. I don't remember a movie that was so cold hearted as this is...and thats what makes it so good. You love and hate these characters at the same time. Some very strong performances complimented with a great script add to this movies excellence. This dark film is beautifully textured visually...lots of scenes in pouring rain to further put you in the mood that Im sure the director intended. Do not miss this one!
