Awakening of the Beast. 1969. Brazil. Directed by José Mojica Marins. In Portuguese; English subtitles. 91 min.
With Mojica Marins, Ozualdo Candeias, Jairo Ferreira, Carlos Reichenbach. In the same indignant, unsparing vein as Bressane’s Killed the Family... and Sganzerla’s Red Light Bandit, Mojica Marin’s psychedelic Awakening of the Beast offers a gleefully over-the-top sociological X-ray of the burgeoning youth counterculture of the late 1960s, the unfettered violence of the Brazilian police, and the latent sadism pervading social relations at every level of São Paulo society.
