Get Mobbed

Il Divo, director Paolo Sorrentino’s very good film about one of Italy’s most corrupt prime ministers has been released on DVD. If you decide to rent it, I would also recommend watching (as a sort of double feature) the even better documentary Excellent Cadavers, Marco Turco’s terrific look at the attempts of two Italian prosecutors who took on the Herculean task of trying to bring Sicilian mobsters to justice.  Watching the documentary will definitely fill in some of the gaps for those not schooled in modern Italian criminal history.
