BOYD VAN HOEIJ, EUROPEAN-FILMS.NET: "The Neapolitan mafia, known as the Camorra, gets the Syriana treatment in Matteo Garrone's Gomorra, one of the most incisive organised-crime films to emerge from any country since the 1970s. Like the bestselling novel that has been translated into 33 languages (including English), Gomorrah the film should find success far and wide."

ANDREW O'HEHIR, SALON.COM: "At times the viewer must struggle to keep up with him, but Garrone finds marvelous, dark, symbolic and poetic images in the appalling and decrepit urban-rural sprawl of Naples... While his movie is about one crime-plagued city (the Camorra is believed responsible for 4,000 murders in Naples since the 1970s), it's hard to avoid seeing it as a broader commentary on Italy's recent social and political paralysis. Furthermore, 'Gomorra' blends the disparate traditions of Italian cinema -- the crime drama, the melodrama, the art film -- more adeptly than any movie from that country in recent memory."
