Antonio das Mortes (Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro, O)
Glauber Rocha, 1969, 100 min.
Winning Rocha the Best Director award at Cannes, Antonio das Mortes—whose alternative title translates as "the dragon of evil against the saint warrior"—chronicles the story of a mercenary peacekeeper hired to kill rebel soldiers who becomes sympathetic to their cause. A visually stunning, epic poem, the film leans stylistically toward Italian Neorealism with the boldness of the French New Wave. With Antonio das Mortes and its predecessor, Black God/White Devil. Rocha revolutionized Latin American cinema in the late 1960s and earned the admiration of cineastes worldwide.
