CINEMA: City of God

watched at new Virgin Cinema Roppongi, Tokyo.
A nonfunctional story of Brazilian slum children inevitably involved in gang life of drugs and guns. This film's brutal side has been well reviewed by media already. But what strike me most was not that kid's violence life but chains of consequences of poor mind behind their catastrophic violence. Kids mindlessly hurt others emotionally and physically. Because kids get used to be hurt, they never hold back from hurting others. Guys hardly get out from these chains. And why they are so particular among poor towns on the globe?
