I love a good gangster movie.  The Godfather, Untouchables, Good Fellas, even Menace II Society.  A must have in any real man’s dvd library.

Now you can add another one. Gomorrah.

It is based on a book by Roberto Saviano, who has since been targeted by the mafia for his work.  This film uncovers how the Camorra (Neapolitan mafia) touches all aspects of every life in the region.  It is shot with a very raw style that is part documentary, part action film.  The effect is powerful, and makes for great viewing. Check out the trailer.


Richard has been in the Essential Style for Men mix since its inception in 2009. When he isn’t busy serving as the ESM’s Director of Fashion & Style, you may find him on the beach playing volleyball, or working hard in Thailand shooting with a beautiful Brazilian supermodel.
