  • José Neves's rating of the film Good-Bye, Chicago

    In the post-revolution Portuguese cinema, this filmmaker (together and collaborating with João Paulo Ferreira, via Cineground), was a special case, both in artistic and discursive terms. Clearly queer and camp, in an adverse cinematography to such pretensions, provided the possibility of an avant-garde that Jack Smith, for example, was in the 60s: a provocative party that was also a new cinematic expressivity.
