CNN is a little late covering the whole Tropa de Elite story and ‘controversy’. Its better that they ‘pede pra sair’ (ask to leave/get out…a famous line from the movie for when a Special Forces enrollee can’t do things right).
Once again, in the American media, Brazil = violence (just like Colombia = cocaine).
Update: October 23rd, 2008
CNN’s newest article on Brazilian cinema is not the one I just posted a few days ago (above) but rather what seems to be an answer to my calling them out for speaking of Brazil only when violence is involved. Ok, so maybe I’m getting big-headed but in a way, its a response as they question the use of violent films in Brazil.
