Summary: The story of a famous Brazilian criminal, called The Red Light Bandit because he always used a red flashlight to break in the houses during the night. Working alone, he also used to rape his female victims. (imdb)
A vicious, uncomfortable chronicle of Brazil in the late 1960s, when this Red Light pervert appears as both demon and god: he encapsulates everything that is wrong and hypocrite about this country -- corruption, violence and indifference to poverty -- and vomits all these sins on us. Sganzerla's imagery, dirty and poor, is the perfect media -- one that is completely sensationalistic and ironic -- for the Bandit.
A freakish new wave piece, this hasn't got much of a plot or anything particularly intelligent to convey, but doesn't take itself too seriously anyway. It's got a unique vibe to it though, thanks to a very dramatic narration thing, and it's kind of a rush.
