A few years from now, Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertô, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants notice that their village has literally vanished from online maps and a UFO-shaped drone is seen flying overhead. There are forces that want to expel them from their homes, and soon, in a genre-bending twist, a band of armed mercenaries led by Udo Kier arrive in town picking off the inhabitants one by one.

I'm not sure what all the fuss was about- this is a pretty lame exploitation flic- not a particularly well made or interesting one either. Don't waste your time.

I really liked this Brazilian film, partly because I couldn't classify it. Set in a small, rural village, it mixes, without any respect for genre, western, sci-fi, action movie, social satire, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez-style magical realism. It's a visual feast and a narrative maze, with strong performances by the mostly unknown cast, as well as Sonia Braga and Udo Kier. Don't sleep on this one.

With shades of Eli Roth’s "Hostel", the murky waters of third world politics is given a surreal edge in this deadly serious satire that sees Western foreign policy and homegrown corruption joining hands to deal with populations deemed inconvenient. Violent, cheeky, and filled with rage, Bacurau’s finer points may be lost on world audiences but it won’t be difficult to spot the Brazilians in the theatre—they’ll be the ones cheering the loudest.
