Quotes

    • Domingas: Brasol IV is a mood inhibitor presented as a powerful painkiller. It's a drug taken by millions of people all over Brazil. Don't ask me why, but suppository is the most popular form of administration. It's bad for you, addictive, and it dulls your wits.

The film is a bracingly confrontational commentary on the direction the country is taking in the Bolsonaro era. Propulsive storytelling doesn’t come at the expense of the vividly sketched personality of the community.

Though handsome in style and admirable in ambition, this sprawling neo-Western never comes together as a satisfying whole.

It’s disturbing and messy, a fever dream for a disturbing and messy time in Brazil. And occasionally, it’s a lot of fun, too.
