As if people would let those things happens, principally in US, with all the concerns, amazing. The naive presented surprised me.
Sincerely, if Brazil do a movie like this no one would never see a Brazilian movie again. For example, only with the exposure of one our biggest flaws, showed in 'Elite Squad', we had some attention from the world. Really, in my opinion this idea was an insult to art.
Hollywood, never the same. To be clear I feel so pleased to watch US movies from the 60'70'80's and course, we don't forget about 90s, the launcher for a few of greatest artists this time, but unfortunately, I was thinking about this, watching the iconic 'The Addams Family', just two days ago 'the 2000s seems that the fantastic writing lost space for this small colored drawing that makes the engine run by so sold arts and consumed by the excess.'
Each time harder to appreciate some of this so called '7th art', if I may, used to call!
