|2001: A Space Odyssey
|Last Year at Marienbad
|TERRA EM TRANSE
An innovative film thematically and formally, dealing with spatio-temporal logic. The tycoon Kane's life story told by a journalist after his death.
The director analyses with his usual sarcasm the structure of Hollywood through a screenwriter who becomes involved with a silent film actress. The world of entertainment, seen without mercy.
Three characters adrift in a boat, remembering their past. Modernism and experimentation in Brazilian cinema, constructivism influencing montage. A cult in national cinematography.
2001: A Space Odyssey
A space adventure that highlights man-machine relationships. Time as a link between technological development and the aspirations of human knowledge.
Narrative stylisation and graphic violence unite the three stories of the plot. Non-linearity and ironic dialogues, full of humour, in a very original fanzine style.
A game of appearances that, in a detective plot, replaces the question of identities in the face of fear and death.
The cinema that thinks of itself as a spectacle, in the vision of a mad director, adding its blocks, indecisions, memories and fantasies in the making of a film.
Last Year at Marienbad
A voluptuous film proposed as a suggestive puzzle that involves memories, temporalities and a rigorous symmetry of forms.
The wealth of a nascent genre that brought to the West the opulence of Japanese culture marked by a humanism that reveals the eternal struggle of good against evil.
TERRA EM TRANSE
The third world and its political disorders, from an imaginary country in Latin America. An energetic mixture of the postulates of Italian neorealism and the nouvelle vague in the construction of a programmatic and formal revolution of the 1960s.
These are synthetic comments on the best points of the impact of these films on Brazilian film culture.
