    Shocking how Zack Snyder managed to fail on all fronts: worst zombie movie; worst heist movie; worst raid movie; worst parkour movie; worst action movie; worst muscle film; worst horror movie on Netflix. There are film scholars who argue that Snyder's poetics took a giant step forward in his obsession with the destruction of the human body: I wonder how you can even think of defending such a film, it's shameful.

    Revised after many years in its 4K's restored version: it seems i've seen it for the very first time. A technically flawless film: Henri Alekan's photography is simply unsurpassed, moving from a gothic chiaroscuro to a super saturated color palette. As Truffaut would say, plaisir des yeux.

    Andrzej Żuławski: “You know how today every French film starts with a girl riding her bicycle. While she rides and rides, you have all the credits, and when she arrives you forget the bicycle, which is of no use anymore, and only then something starts. I don't want to use that bicycle!”

    Dumans and Uchoa use that bicycle... throughout all the movie. Contemporary Brazilian films pretend to be political manifestos: the result of this good political intent is this obvious and boring stuff.
