Ilha das Flores (1989)

»The Isle of Flowers exists. God does not exist.«

A short, rushed, ironic documentary on the absurdities of capitalism. Repetitive and elliptical, told in a disrespectful, tongue-in-cheek, almost Monty Pythonesque manner. Highly acclaimed, though criticized for using staged depictions of poverty.

Amusing and clever, but a bit too simplistic for my book.
