If Li'l Ze is going to be a criminal he is determined to the most powerful criminal in the City of God.
The vivid and grainy cinematography combines with documentarian editing to craft a fast-paced depiction of the narrative that balances a variety of characters with their own distinct sub-plots that all explore various themes (Li'l Ze's childlike viciousness, Knockout Ned's well-intentioned venture into crime, Bene's attempt to leave the life, Rocket's being caught up in the life due to fate and circumstance, etc.), all played by amateurs to successfully enhance the film's realistic vibe.
The City of God is a new development at that time, the streets are dirt, the playground is dirt, and all the shanties everyone lives in are caked in dirt.
