    ★★★★½

    A heady brew. Starts off as a social drama detailing the troubles of an isolated village in Northern Brazil before bringing in elements of The Most Dangerous Game, grindhouse and early John Carpenter. Also includes:

    - Udo Kier
    - Hallucinogens
    - Drones disguised as UFOs
    - A capoeira sequence set to sythnwave
    - A Bolsanaro like figure being ridiculed at every turn.
    - Nudity in all of its non-airbrushed glory.

    This, Parallax View and Rolling Thunder are the holy triumvirate of '60s gone sour' movies.

    ★★★½

    Solid and enjoyable effort. It does enough differently to separate it from its forebears, but not enough to be the saviour of the genre some have touted it as.

    ★½

    Weird mix of boys own adventure, pulp and rampant colonialism/racism.

    Lee/Cushing are the saving graces.
