Win­ner of the jury grand prize at Cannes and dozens of other awards through­out Europe, Go­mor­rah in­ex­pli­ca­bly was over­looked for a for­eign lan­guage Academy Award nom­i­na­tion. It does not live up to the 2006 book by jour­nal­ist Roberto Sa­viano, who risked ev­ery­thing to go in­side Italy’s mod­ern-day crime fam­i­lies. But, told through the eyes of five in­di­vid­u­als who think they can make their own pact with the lo­cal Mafia, the Camorra, the docu-drama-style film still has more than enough hard edge.
