O dragão da maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro (Rocha)

Antonio das Mortes

O dragão da maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro | Glauber Rocha

A killer hired to hunt down the “cangaceiros” confronts the harsh realities of northeast Brazil, marked by political and police corruption and the loneliness of intellectuals. Local critics traced its influences in Welles’ It’s All True; it was a triumph of Cinema Novo: erotic, hallucinatory, a call to arms.
