  • My Name Ain't Johnny

    2007. Brazil. Directed by Mauro Lima. With Selton Mello, Cleo Pires, Julia Lemmertz. Lima's morality tale chronicles the true story of João Guilherme Estrella's descent into the clichéd excesses of drugs and drug trafficking. Lima's camera movements brilliantly reflect Estrella's travails—images float and roam as if complicit in the bohemian abandon of the drug lord's lifestyle, only to quietly change pace as he embraces self-reflection and rehabilitation. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 124 min.
