"Gomorrah" is made up of six short episodes with six main characters--all revolving around the four-sided criminality between the port of Naples, Scampia, Castelvolturno and Terzigno.
The movies can always find hell on earth. But it takes a certain uncompromising vision to hole up there for well more than two hours and leave you in fear for your life. "Gomorrah" begins with murders at a tanning parlor and ends with murders on a beach. Hell wants to take over as much of the movie's poor Naples region as organized crime does. One creates the conditions for the other to thrive.
