The 16 dirtiest Brazilian films of the past 10 years

Five Brazilian journalists take a dirty look at 16 of the filthiest creations of Brazilian cinema in the past 10 years, and reclaim their often overlooked value

DMovies has selected the 16 dirtiest Brazilian films made in the past 10 years in order to coincide with our launch on February 4th, 2016. Each one of these films was picked by the reviewer him or herself.

Brazilian cinema is no longer a consistent cinema movement as with Glauber Rocha’s and Rogério Sganzerla innovative and influential Cinema Novo in the 1970s. There are, however, many ground-breaking films being made individually. These dirty gems challenge cinema rules social taboos and the political establishment, in both subtle and bold ways. While these movies do not constitute a movement per se, they do make up a very tall pile of artistic filth.

These 16 films are listed below in alphabetical order, and each single one has been reviewed individually in a brand new way, always looking to uncover their hidden “dirt” (click here in order to find out what we mean by “dirty”):

Five films were then shortlisted by a panel of nine Brazilian film professionals and critics, also listed below:

The five films are now listed in the survey on the right. Now it’s up to you to select the dirtiest Brazilian film of the past 10 years!

The winner will win a dirty accolade and special screening in London soon.

DMovies hopes that you enjoy the read, and stay with us as we uncover much more dirt in every corner of the planet!
