Funny and smart mockumentary with a bad videoclip
13 December 2020 | by guisreisSee all my reviews

Te idea of making a mockumentary on the life and death of Jesus was very nice. There are great moments mocking documentary language, Brazilian current and recent political issues since 2016 coup, reactionary people and TV shows, and stories in the Bible themselves. It is the best of dark humor Christmas specials made by comedy crew Porta dos Fundos so far (2018 "The hangover" parody 'Se beber não ceie', and 2019 'First temptation of Christ' are also nice, but in a lower level). However, as with its prequels, 'The Edge od Theocracy' has ups and downs, hilarious momens and others whixh are not so funny. The very end, particularly, deviating completely from the documentary format and showing an awkward videoclip was a frustrating drawback.
