    BACURAU (Kleber Mendonça Filho, Juliano Dornelles 2019)

    Humans hunting humans for sport in a rural northern Brazilian town stands for the brutality of the current right wing regime, American imperialism, and other unsavory aspects of Brazilian politics and history. A surprising genre-blurring mix (Wikipedia calls it "a Brazilian Weird Western") that would benefit from more dramatic tension and tighter structure, but good enough to include in 31 international festivals and be co-winner of the 2019 Cannes Jury Prize. Coming later to US theaters.
