  1. For all the grimness and desperation on view in Mango Yellow, the characters emerge as robust, full-dimensional people in touch with their explosive feelings.

    It's a beautifully constructed, often disturbing look at a day in the life of several down-at-the-heels denizens of Recife.

    It's a lot to suffer through for a film that has nothing to say, but insists on saying it anyway. Repeatedly.
  4. A shallow Brazilian trifle.

    Like characters out of some Carnival hell, a macho butcher and his born-again wife, a forlorn barmaid, a sinister sadist and the gay manager of a flophouse called the Hotel Texas run in and out of each other's lives in a film as sloppy, sluttish, scruffy and vital as they are.
