A little while ago I watched the film Bacurau. A Brazilian-French co-production directed by Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles, Bacurau defies easy description. ‘Weird sci-fi’ goes some ways towards it. ‘Weird sci-fi black comedy anti-imperialist eco-Western’ gets closer. However you want to describe it, I thought it was sublime. Exactly the kind of daring and boundary-busting film I love to watch. The titular Bacurau is the name of a small fictional village in rural Brazil, and it’s the canvas upon which the filmmakers tell a story of callously brutal white neo-colonialism and the heroically defiant feats of resistance that rise up to meet it. It would be a spoiler to say much more than that. The film really is best experienced knowing as little as possible about it. The reason I bring it up here is I saw a Twitter thread prompted by this question the other day:

The first thing that popped into my mind on reading that was Bacurau. Why? Because the singular Udo Kier spends a healthy portion of that film having what looks like an absolute blast. As if you needed another reason to give it a go.
