Fernando Meirelles' City of God.  "This film opens a world that is largely unseen by the developed West, telling a nail-biting story that accurately reflects generations of children lost to a world we wouldn't wish on anyone. Queasiness at an opening scene where live chickens are beheaded for the cooking pot is soon put into insignificance as we realize the horrific cheapness of human life."
