Verão Danado

Portugalia, 2017


Chico lives in Lisbon where he graduated, he is part of a generation without prospects, for which adulthood seems to be perpetually delayed. An adrenaline rush with Lisbon as the backdrop of a drifting youth, composed of idling afternoons, drugs, heartbreaks and psychedelic moods immersed in music.

Recenzii ale criticilor

We don’t see the characters develop the ideological and moral rigidity expected of adulthood, and the film doesn’t judge them for it. Their lives are an experiment of delayed adulthood and Cabeleira captures these specters in their hedonistic purgatory.

It succeeds as a near-total approximation of the drug and alcohol-addled party experience, with no less than half of its hefty 128-minute runtime given over to wholly sensory depictions of house party indulgence and nightclub effervescence—on a few occasions devolving into imagery of such abstract intensity that it feels as if the film may never reemerge from the bedlam.

The arbitrary super-wide images are ill-advised and I’m not sure there is much impulse beyond extended lifestyle immersion, but the steady accumulation of lost time, great tunes, and aimless play grows to capture the sense of all the world falling away but for this sensual, senseless, endless moment.
