O Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro (Antonio Das Mortes)

Posted by martinteller on August 26, 2009

The sequel to Black God, White Devil which I wasn’t too fond of.  Not so wild about this one either.  Again, Rocha’s strongest achievement is in sound design and the use of song for narration.  Other than that, it’s kind of like Jodorowsky with about 90% of the surrealism removed.  If that doesn’t sound dull to you, well, it is to me.  I had a really, really hard time making myself care about what was going on or who was killing who.  It does move at a good clip, at least, but I was still pretty bored and uninterested, despite appreciating how unusual it was.  Rating: 5
