The Case of the Naves Brothers

The Case of the Naves Brothers ★★★★½

It's only when you see torture done like this that you truly realize how glossy even intentionally ugly violence is in other audiovisual work. Person's blend of legal-ish statement-of-the-facts reenactment, with striking melodramatic close-ups and the physical and psychological aggressions themselves, which of course include every part of the 'due process', is incredibly effective in its juxtapositions. Naturally dialogues with the last film I saw in scary, insightful ways too.
