Bloody Bloody Bacurau

One of the movies I've been trying to figure out the year for as of late so I can place it either in my 2019 list of favorite movies or save it for 2020's is Juliano Dornelles and Kleber Mendonça Filho's film Bacurau from Brazil, which I saw at the New York Film Festival this past September -- I reviewed it right here. And if it's not immediately clear by the act of me worrying which year it goes in on a favorites list, I fucking loved it. 

It's about a quirky town called Bacurau in the middle of nowhere that gets invaded by a bunch of "foreign adversaries" who've been hired by the government to clear the land -- it's an insanely bloody genre blast that's at the same time deeply political; it's smart, it's insane, it's angry as fuck and therefore perfect for our times, and it stars Udo Kier and Sonia Braga. Literally everything. 

Anyway as seen up top the poster's just been released (via) as well as a US release date -- Bacurau will hit the US on March 6th. So, to work my way back to the start, I am saving it for my 2020 list I guess. Here's a trailer that came out awhile back:

Great movie, indeed.
A new look from 1932 - The Most Dangerous Game, or 1997 - The Pest ...
Don`t U think so ?
