  • the best Brazilian film since City of God?
    January 3, 2018
    Brazilian cinema has always had enough quality and could easily have won the Oscar for best foreign film for the excellent City of God, but this year the film was not nominated, but at least it got 4 nominations, including in the best director category and it was a great made, but never managed to win the Oscar, but Bingo: The King of the Morning was a big bet to finally get this prize, but will not get again because it was not among the pre-competitors, but still a lot of people consider Bingo: The King of the Morning The best Brazilian film since City of God, I disagree, is a good movie, but in that time frame had better movies, it is a movie that has a narrative style a bit like Birdman won from Oscar best film in 2014, and the plot is based on the real story of Arlindo Barreto who was the Bozo clown in Brazil, the film he is good, has great moments, and good performances, Vladimir Britcha is excellent the movie has a problem in the dramatic scenes, it stretches a lot and sometimes it's a little forced, it could be shorter the scenes, some characters are very caricature and there are others that no relevance in the film and could be easily cut from the film, the direction of Daniel Rezende is very competent but I think he could have taken better advantage of some actors, I did not like the son of the protagonist that is interpreted by Cauã Martins, I think he's not so important in the movie, Bingo: The King of the Morning is a good movie, but it could have been better. Note 7.5
