Editorial Reviews

Review

A ' must' for anyone interested in Brazilian cinema.

Review

Assembles some of the best writing on the subject.... The issues raised in the essays go beyond the Brazilian case and apply to many other cinemas.

Top Customer Reviews

Johnson and Stam have compiled what is perhaps the definitive commentary on Brazilian cinema, offering thorough explications of the most important films from several different periods and styles. The book also discusses in detail tropicalism, anthropophagy, and other background elements that are integral to achieve an understanding of Brazilian cinema. Though some of the concepts may seem daunting, they are explained clearly and in a historical context, making it an excellent reference for students (either of Brazil or film in general). While some of the same articles appear in Cinema Novo X 5, Brazilian Cinema covers a wider range of subjects. If you are interested in Brazilian films, it is a must-read.

This book really breaks brazilian cinema down from the very beginning until now. We gather a sense of how it developed, how it struggled, and how the amazing culture of brazil is shown through all it's many older and newer films today. I would suggest to anyone buying this book to watch the films first as it is always easier to watch the films before reading about them.
