  • Suburra - Italian Neo-Noir

    I've stumbled upon this gem cause the director, Stefano Sollima ( son of Sergio ) is one of the talents behind Gomorrah, one of my all time favorite shows, and it exceeded my expectations. I cant recall the last time a good thriller came out of Italy. Wonderfully photographed, bleak, violent and with an amazing soundtrack. No wonder the director got picked up to direct the sequel to Sicario.

    Any thoughts on this little seen gem of a movie ?

    Yeah I liked it alot. The plot was perhaps not the most advanced, but the style and finesse they tell it with makes it great. The photography as you say is fantastic.

    Netflix has bought the rights to make it into a series. I just hope Stefano Sollima is involved as an exec producer or something, to make sure they continue with the same style which works so well.

      SUBURRA Coming to Limited Edition Blu-ray + DVD 9/26/23

      Unearthed Films Delivers SUBURRA
      on Limited Edition Blu-ray and DVD on September 26th
      On September 26th, Unearthed Films brings writer/director Stefano Sollima’s Neo-Noir crime thriller SUBURRA to Limited Edition Blu-Ray and DVD.

      Based on real-life events of the Mafia Capitale that occurred in 2011, SUBURRA follows the attempts to turn a small-town – owned by the Capitale – into the Las Vegas of Italy. Corruption, triple-crossing, blackmailing, AND murder all follow as politician Filippo Malgradi’s (Pierfrancesco Favino) plans to help a Mafia boss known as Samurai (Claudio Amendola) turn upside-down when Malgradi is involved with the death of a sex worker. An all-out war happens as Malgradi and others fight for their slice of power and money.

      Adapted from the 2013 novel of the same name by Carlo Bonini and Giancarlo De Cataldo, SUBURRA is a modern crime thriller in the tradition of the acclaimed TV series Gomorrah and Sollima’s own Sicario: Day of the Soldado.

      The Blu-ray and DVD special features include The Making of Suburra - a two-hour full-length documentary; a production gallery; and a theatrical trailer, housed in a limited-edition slipcase.
