Prisional binarism
3 January 2013 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the meanwhile, globo filmes pray in the lines of the orthodox confession of faith, and finance things like ... salve geral. What is seen is a bad plot composition spoken in Portuguese. Bad guys vs good guys. I imagine that things such as this are happening in other cinema schools, what doesn't add to the understanding of how Brazil - or Brazilian prisional system really works. If you put a Bruce willis here and some denzel washington there, you may even generate an Oscar-winning piece of ...work. Facts are correct, but badly narrated, this is it.
