Brazil on pain of death - The film Tropa of Elite, fee by many as fascist, in fact may be considered brilliant. If not, see. The plot tells the story of a trafficker in a hill in Rio de Janeiro, which by desenrolares the plot just killing a police officer of the elite troops of the police fluminense. Companions of the slain colleague climb the hill. Several torture and deaths (of suspects and civilians who have nothing to do with the case) then find the murderer, and liquidate. However, while apparently shows the good-mocismo troops of the elite, the director José Padilha reveals all podres police fluminense, no more and no less than the rest of the country. Critics accused engaged the director of fascist. Not understood. He explained cruamente and the worldwide corruption within the Brazilian police, torture during training of troops from elite, the indiscriminate killing of civilians and suspected in the hills of a country that has no shame and, supposedly, not to the death, corruption, crime official, the purposeful mediocrity of the authorities ... Who is fascist? Let us, then, a comparison. Each time the competent reporter Caco Barcellos launches a book-complaint (Route 66, the story of the police who kills), going directly to the same issues addressed by José Padilha, the journalist has to hide, fleeing from the reported threats, always the same organs security of the country. After a prolonged and widespread display of film, José Padilha had to hide out, spend a season out of the country? Of course not, because it was so subtle in its complaint that from the perspective of uncultivable the Brazilian people, including itself and the police authorities (!?), the hero of the story is Captain Nascimento.
On a superficial reading, Captain Nascimento, responsible for Tropa of Elite, it incensado, alçado to the status of hero, defending fragile values of a mass ignara and defenceless. A further observation, or both intelectualizada, shows that Tropa of Elite, in fact, is a film of anti-heroes, each giving in a way that has no way to support a country increasingly perverse. The film shows people of the hill and the asphalt, police, traffickers, and we saw that. If a life is worth nothing in the hill, valley nothing anywhere in the country, highlights José Padilha. Tomorrow or later, the bullet missed, torture, rape, terrorism of State can take their, my, our soul. And few people know it that. If a life is worth nothing in any corner Brazilian, and Tropa of Elite shows very well that, then born, study, work, pay taxes, have children, you bet, dreaming, not worth it. So, in Brazil, people live under threat of death.
