Citizen Kane

1941 USA

An innovative film thematically and formally, dealing with spatio-temporal logic. The tycoon Kane's life story told by a journalist after his death.

Sunset Blvd.

1950 USA

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.


1931 Brazil

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

1968 USA, United Kingdom

A space adventure that highlights man-machine relationships. Time as a link between technological development and the aspirations of human knowledge.

Pulp Fiction

1994 USA

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.


1958 USA

A game of appearances that, in a detective plot, replaces the question of identities in the face of fear and death.

1963 Italy, France

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

1961 France, Italy

A voluptuous film proposed as a suggestive puzzle that involves memories, temporalities and a rigorous symmetry of forms.

Seven Samurai

1954 Japan

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.


1967 Brazil

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.

Further remarks

These are synthetic comments on the best points of the impact of these films on Brazilian film culture.
