What are people saying?

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Who Killed Eloá?

    Who Killed Eloá should be seen after reading Debord's The Society of the Spectacle. Everything about this kidnap is so surreal and media-made. The highest point is when the invited guest on the news says: in my opinion, this is going to have a happy ending - he's just a boy in love, soon they'll get married and this is all going to be behind them. Too bad Lindemberg killed Eloá before having their happy ending.
