  • Sin título.'s rating of the film Defiant Brasilia

    Cuando las historias que vemos se presentan como una lejanía que nunca hemos experimentado pero podemos vivir a través de imágenes podemos decir que su ficción documentalista cumplió su función, esto no sucede aqui. Algo rescatable es la mezcla de ruido ambiental con fragmentos de canciones populares llenos de la textura que le ofrecen los dispositivos de baja fidelidad en los cuales son reproducidas.
