Gomorrah | Ratings & Reviews

"Utilizing a mesmerizing documentary style that studiously avoids glamorizing the horrors, Garrone cherrypicks episodes from Saviano's muckraking tract, building to a chillingly matter-of-fact crescendo of violence..."


"After Gomorrah fades to black, shiver-inducing stats flash on to the screen like nails being hammered into a coffin."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Part of what's bracing about Gomorrah, and makes it feel different from so many American crime movies, is both its deadly serious take on violence and its global understanding of how far and wide the mob's tentacles reach, from high fashion to the very dirt."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Gomorrah looks grimy and sullen, and has no heroes, only victims. That is its power."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"Grim, violent, mesmerising masterpiece."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"It's cruel, it’s violent, and it’s cripplingly real, so this film won't be for everyone. But even with my well-documented girlie stomach for violence, I still found this an incredibly rewarding watch."


"The fingerprints of the Camorra are everywhere, this film wants us to know, and its grip is lethal."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Powerful, stripped to its very essence and featuring a spectacular cast (of mostly non-professionals), Matteo Garrone's sixth feature film Gomorra goes beyond Tarrantino's gratuitous violence and even Scorsese's Hollywood sensibility in depicting the everyday reality of organized crime's foot soldiers."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A sombre, slow, but well-paced study of organised crime in urban Naples that leaves a very grim taste in the mouth."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"Gomorrah is a very strong, occasionally entrancing film. I would have liked to have seen more cross-over between the stories, and the film would have benefited from a tighter edit, but it deserves its accolades, and your attention."
