Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema, on DVD
What a great film, and I haven’t said that in a while. Gangster’s Paradise is inspired by true events and features Lucky Kunene as an up-and-coming street player in crime riddled Johannesburg, South Africa. As a teen he starts out with simple smash and grabs, but things get tense, and he can’t get back to the life he once had. He eventually ends up a modern Robin Hood slumlord of sorts, trying to make better living conditions for poor residents, while at the same time making himself rich. Will Kunene be able to keep up the life? The story is well told, well acted, and is visually stunning.
