2009. Brazil. Directed by Sergio Bianchi. With Fernando Alves Pinto, Zezeh Barbosa, Caio Blat. Bianchi’s richly detailed film excavates society’s fear of and fascination with violence—from television’s constant stream of near-pornographic mayhem to venomous suspicion between neighbors, petty feuds within married couples, and quarreling among children—in an indictment of the lowest human impulses. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 103 min.
