Men of God

City of God is one of my favorite films of the last few years — an exhilirating, harrowing, moving, and entertaining tale of gang warfare in the slums of Rio. Director Fernando Meirelles followed up with The Constant Gardner, which was visually interesting but otherwise disappointing.

This, however, looks promising: City of Men, a spin-off of sorts that Meirelles originally made for Brazillian television. It debuts here tomorrow on the Sundance Channel.

There's a really funny Q&A with Mereilles about the show here: http://www.nymag.com/arts/tv/features/16565/index.html
