Worth Watching - Nov 13: City of Men Trailer
True cinephiles out there know how incredible Fernando Meirelles' City of God is. Personally, it's one of my all-time favorite movies that changed my life and the way I look at cinema forever. Although I know not much will ever come close to achieving the same bliss that it did, I'm still looking forward to City of Men, the unofficial "sequel" to City of God. This time it's only produced by Fernando Meirelles, meaning not the same level of excellence, but at least some. Miramax is putting this out, presumably in very limited release, starting on January 18th next year and I'll definitely be in line to see it. For those who are brave enough to appreciate truly great cinema, then enjoy this trailer.
