    Tancredo - A Travessia

    ★★★★

    As the third film of Tendler's "interrupted dreams" trilogy, this is an insightful and tragic documentary about an admirable man — a tactful conciliator who would have probably been a great president had his life not been cut short together with the dreams of those who sought change.

    Couples Retreat

    It is hard to believe that any producer would green-light a project such as this, so devoid of humor and attractiveness (except for its paradisaical locations, of course), and it is often expository, repetitious, sexist and racist, without a single sympathetic character whatsoever.

    ★★★★½
