Gomorra has been held over at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinemas (IFC)
The Italian crime drama Gomorra , based on Roberto Saviano's best-selling book, will be held over at Landmark's Ken Cinema for at least another week. Listen to our lively discussion of the film from the March KPBS Film Club of the Air. The book and film explore the extensive reach the crime families in Naples have over the local residents as well as reching into aspects of the global economy. It rejects the romanticization of The Godfather films and the glamorization of Scarface for something more realistic.
