Toronto 2000 Wrap-Up
15 October 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

9/9 1:00 pm TURBULENCE (**1/2)

Recommended for those interested in Latin American film. Knowledge of Brazilian class structure a must. This film has great style and weird, colorful characters. Problem is, this journey of an upper-middle class dilettante is interesting when surreal but falls prey to too many conventionally narrative moments.
