City of God

In the ranks of film about organized crime, Fernando Meirelles and Katia Lund's City of God is a movie that has earned its place among the heavy hitters of the genre. Weaving a tale of almost two decades of Brazilian crime, City of God also tells the story of how the Cidade de Deus neighborhood was developing from the 1960s straight through to the 1980s. But as most good crime dramas go, there are moments of intense realism, as well as some serious ethical questions laid at the feet of the characters on screen. Which is why almost 20 years after its initial release, the film still sticks with us to this day.

This movie has always been, and will always remain, one of Robin Williams' finest films. Dead Poets Society is the type of flick that an inspired English teacher will show you in class, and either you're with it from frame one or it sinks in years down the road. But eventually, everyone finds themselves on that desk, shouting "Oh captain, my captain". It's a good place to be, and this is the movie that gets you there.
