‘Bacurau’ and its paradoxical argument about globalization

Published

One of the great advantages of the new boom in online content is the possibility of enjoying a completely different type of cinema than the one we are used to. An exploration in author stories, but also in the way cinema is transforming. In the case of Bacurau , by Kleber Mendonça Filho, it is also a delightful journey through the cinematographic as a vehicle to get to know and delve into the way in which we understand the current world and its possible variants.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about Bacurau is his subjective gaze on an objective subject: Mendonça Filho’s film tells the story of a Brazilian community that is determined to confront modernization and modernization with all the weapons that its most deeply-rooted customs offer them . And while it seems like a benign metaphor for identity and the search for a reason to understand the personal in the midst of mass culture, it is also a journey toward more complicated ideas about the modern individual.

Mendonça Filho takes power relations, new perceptions about communication and contemporary cultural ambitions to contextualize the daily struggle of a small community. This curious scale allows you to understand the motivations of your script from a new perspective and also create the feeling that the narration could happen anywhere and at any time. The timeless allows Bacurau to spread like a strange optic that encompasses the individual as part of a system, but also the small exceptions that distance him from the common center of things.

Bacurau and its effects game

All of the above through an iron character that, as in other director’s works, is sustained on the basis of character and the desire to remain to build something more powerful. To create the necessary tension for a small work but with great ambitions, Mendonça Filho makes interesting decisions such as starting the film from a wide – and almost magical – plane, and  then focusing his attention on a common couple crossing a dark road. Teresa (Barbara Colen), a native of the village that gives the film its title, is the first face the camera focuses on.

The thoroughness of the resource seems to give it a curious role, which is really nothing more than a deceptive resource to narrate the thousands of peripheral situations that support this strange script, which often opts for traps and mirror games, to lead the viewer to the very center of history. Teresa is the context, but she is not the center of the action and by the time the story makes it clear it is evident that it will be a trick that the narration will use over and over again.

The film has a lot of magical realism: there are a lot of splintered coffins, a radiant mountain in the dark, dreamlike landscapes that baffle for their beauty. All of the above together with a pragmatic vision of time that Mendonça Filho brings to the narration with unexpected blows.

Political posters show real Brazil, while small bites of hallucinogens – which the characters mistake for a joyous sense of freedom -  turn the scene into a radiant mix of colors and sounds. In Bacurau nothing is what it seems, nothing makes real sense, nothing is real unless the camera focuses and contextualizes it. Perhaps the most unusual in the midst of a rather sober narration.

The peculiarity of its characters

Bacurau is full of an extravagant fauna of inexplicable characters: from a sweet prostitute, a heartbroken doctor, a gangster who does not understand too much his return to common life … The town is a melting pot of very strange versions of the reality that It has the same intention: to create the sensation that in reality, the film is an oral narration that is not lavished in a simple way . As if it were a substitute for the legendary Macondo de Garcia Marquez, Bacurau is better understood from its characters – those without names and those who are destined to lead the viewer through its intricate streets – than from the scenes they star in.

Of course, in Bacurau not everything is dreamlike or lacks connection with the real world. Modern life is manifested in deficiencies and it is just that common thread with what happens beyond the magical borders of the tiny town, which makes the script have an unusual three-dimensional quality.

Everything seems to happen at the same time: while in Bacurau the extraordinary situations follow one another, on the other side there are disputes over the supply routes closed due to endemic violence, food is not enough for everyone and there is a very clear connotation of the very pragmatic and realistic rigors suffered by the villagers.

But even so, the film has enough evocative power to narrate an apparently small story, which ends up surprising for its power, beauty and eloquence. As if from the rickety wooden doors of the town, another new and unknown universe could be seen. Perhaps its greatest strength.

After Weekend, Halsey Also Slams Grammys for Corruption, Says ’Hoping for More Transparency ‘




After being snubbed at the Grammy nominations this year, American singer-songwriter Halsey has called out the nomination process, criticising it for being about more than just releasing quality music or cultural impact. BTS At Grammys 2020: From Boy With Luv to Mic Drop, 5 Songs That the K-Pop Hotties Should Perform at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards!

“I’ve been thinking and wanted to choose my words carefully because a lot of people have extended sympathy and apology to me since the Grammy nominations. The Grammys are an elusive process,” she wrote on Instagram Stories.

“It can often be about behind the scenes private performances, knowing the right people, campaigning through the grapevine, with the right handshakes and ‘bribes’ that can be just ambiguous enough to pass as ‘not bribes’. And if you get that far, it’s about committing to exclusive TV performances and making sure you help the Academy make their millions in advertising on the night of the show,” she added.

The singer continued: “Perhaps sometimes it is (!!!) but it’s not always about the music or quality or culture. Just wanted to get that off my chest. @theweeknd deserves better, and Manic did too (woman shrugging emoji) perhaps it’s unbecoming of me to say so but I can’t care anymore. While I am THRILLED for my talented friends who were recognised this year, I am hoping for more transparency or reform. But I’m sure this post will blacklist me anyway.”

Halsey has not received a single nomination for her 2020 album Manic, which included the chart-topping single Without meGRAMMYs 2021 Nominations: The Weeknd Slams Recording Academy After His Snub, Says ‘The Grammys Remain Corrupt’

In a social media post last week, The Weeknd also accused the Recording Academy of being “still corrupt”. His reaction got a response from interim Grammy chief Harvey Mason jr., who insisted that the process is legitimate.

“All the records get the fairest of fair shakes,” he said to variety.com, adding: “We listen to all the music — it’s a long, arduous process and people take pride in it. The people in that room care: there’s no agendas in there, there’s no ‘let’s snub this person’ or that person. It’s about, ‘Let’s try and find excellence’.”

The 2021 Grammy Awards nominations were announced on November 24, with Beyonce leading the way with nine nods, followed by Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Roddy Ricch with six apiece.

Arshi Khan on Her Web Series Mary Aur Marlow: “It Will Have Bold Content but Still Is a Fun, Comic Show”




Actress Arshi Khan is out exploring her comic side in the OTT space and she is aware her new show comes with loads of double meaning. Bigg Boss 11’s Arshi Khan Feels Controversies Exits Because Audience Likes Watching Contestants Fight.

Arshi is seen trying her hand at comedy in the web series Mary Aur Marlow. She stars opposite Akshay Mishra in the series that revolves around Mary and Marlow, where Mary (Arshi) ends up becoming a sexpert for grassroots level people who cannot afford to go to the doctor or specialist.

Since Mary’s Hindi is not up to the mark, Akshay, who plays Marlow, helps her communicate with the people she sets out to help. However, when he tries using ‘shudh’ Hindi, it leads to unintentional double meaning language.

From the trailer and title, it is not surprisingly evident that the show has a lot of double-meaning dialogues. Former Bigg Boss 11 Contestant Arshi Khan to Enter Savitri Devi College And Hospital as a GHOST.

“It’s a double-meaning show but I think Mary Aur Marlow is also a fun title. After hearing the title, people think it will have bold content but when they watch it, they will realise it’s a fun show, which has a lot of comic scenes,” Arshi told IANS in a telephonic interview.

Reacting to the government’s decision, to put all digital media portals, including online news and Over-the-Top (OTT) platforms under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting regulation, Arshi said: “The government should definitely regulate digital platforms because nowadays there are a lot of web series that are showing vulgar content and people of any age group can access the internet. So, the government surely needs to keep an eye on them.”

Arshi feels she has good comic timing. “I never find it difficult to do comedy on screen because I feel my comic timing is really good, so I like to act in shows which have comic content,” Arshi said.

“I had a really nice experience shooting for this series and I had a lot of fun working with (director) Anirudh (Kumar) while we were shooting for it. We have released just one episode of the show and I hope the audience will have a lot more fun watching the next episodes,” she added about the show, currently streaming on Big Movie Zoo App.
