    Beautiful documentary detailing the corrupt means with which the rising right wing took down Brazil's greatest leader, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. #LulaLivre

    New found appreciation for this classic. So much to take in, Dante jam-packed this film with social commentary and references all serving a purpose to critique the dangers of unchecked American consumerism, and nostalgia. He's is a brilliant story teller and it's clear he didn't have to compromise to much on his vision.

    Beautifully simple in concept but so rich in the complexity of human experience it takes us through. Will be very interesting and I think rewarding to come back in ten years to see how moments in the film affect me then.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    2nd time in my life I've seen it. First time I was a child and it didn't stick with me through the years. This viewing was like a revelation. For me the humor is all in Arkin’s reactions to what’s happening. The crazy president is funny with the hand puppet and the water, but Arkin’s reaction puts me on the floor doubled over with laughter. This is Arkin’s comic genius on parade.
