Slow, intense and bold.
26 July 2018 | by filipe-arteSee all my reviews

Comeback sold itself as a neo-western, a genre-reference movie. But I have to tell you that its insides adds up its own aesthetics, a pace that resembles more the "Brazilian New Cinema" school from the 70´s than anything else that's is certainly there: Tarantino´s "going nowhere" dialogues, slow panoramas, minimalist music and the ghost suburban town of Anápolis.

A ride that truly pays off due to its uniqueness than to its clear references.
