O Bandido da Luz Vermelha (1968)
»It’s a western about The Third World«
Experimental, surprising, tongue in cheek intro leads to an intentionally chaotic – sometimes almost amateurish – tale of violence and social indignation. Fragmented, choppy storytelling paired with nihilistic content seems fitting for a disillusioned and confused left under a repressive regime.
»If you don’t kill, it’s no use«
Crime seems to be the only viable rebellion in yet another brash and defiant testimonial from poor, violent, guilt-ridden Brazil. In my book of sensationalist, sarcastic satire.
