    I think it’s a beautiful movie. Both thematically and, especially, visually. Really amazing shots. But, weirdly, the plot is just not enough, feels like a thread to put it all together is missing, somehow, so it’s kind of tiring and hits sort of bland.

    at first, I was like, what the fuck am I watching

    then I was like, is this the Click (2006) of this decade? mashed up with the Matrix?

    then I was 😭😭😭😭😭

    "even though you have broken my heart yet again, I wanted to say, in another life, I would have really liked just doing laundry and taxes with you"

    PS: shoutout to the Wong Kar-Wai references, I'd probably enjoy anything that references him...

    this movie is literally perfect, one of my favorites of all time, it is has the powerful effect of witchcraft, it’s a mystical odyssey of the eschatological element of the destiny of the poor and exploited of Brazil, moving between the millenarianism of folk catholic syncretism and the folklore of the banditism of the cangaceiros, it is deeply universal and also local and regional, and it culminates as a cry for liberation of the people and the overthrow of landowner, government and God all at once. It is a movie on divine violence, history, faith, oppression and liberation.
