Macunaíma ★★★★

I read a negative review on here complaining of the cartoonish nature of the film, saying it’s like “Robert Crumb or Philip Guston drawings come to life”....like that’s a bad thing? Even tho I don’t completely agree with the exact comparison (or any one interpretation that could pigeonhole such a layered film) I’m not so sure you can utilize another style to portray a moment so absurd.
