Movie Info

Just after Bacurau, an isolated town in northeastern Brazil, loses its matriarch, they find themselves in another ordeal: a certain power seems to be targeting their town. Slowly, signs begin to show up - their location is deleted from maps, masked strangers begin to appear around town, and ominous drones take to their skies. Soon enough, it is revealed that a group of American tourists, led by Michael (Udo Kier), is planning on hunting them for sport. However, the townspeople are more sinister than what they seem to be. Written and directed by Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles.

Critic Reviews for Bacarau

All Critics (3)

After a while, the film's steely, hyper-stylized trappings begin to feel thin and unsatisfying as well.

There's lots to admire here, in the performances and the visuals, and the way that widescreen makes the vast, cactus-rich landscapes a perfect backdrop for the bizarre mix of genres... But Bacurau ultimately wasn't to my taste.

"Bacurau" is a blood-soaked adventure worth seeking out.
