Watch This Clip From the Brazilian Western Bacurau and Then Read Absolutely Nothing Else About It

Some movies just play better when you have no idea what they’re about, and that is absolutely the ideal way to enjoy Bacurau, a new dystopian spaghetti Western from Brazil — which I guess makes it a feijoada Western — that won the Jury Prize at Cannes last year. All you really need to know is that the “Bacurau” of the title is a remote town in the Brazilian backcountry where the highway is littered with empty coffins, horses are stampeding down the street, no one can get a cell signal, and the whole village has been wiped from Google Maps. What’s occurring? The townspeople are just as stumped as the audience, but rest assured, the film eventually reveals itself as a caipirinha-eyed critique of president Jair Bolsonaro. The pleasure of Bacurau comes from the way directors Juliano Dornelles and Kleber Mendonça Filho immerse you in the town’s world, so to that end, please enjoy this clip from early in the film, in which local politician Tony Jr. pays a visit. It should give you a taste of how the citizens of Bacurau work together in a crisis. (Very, very sneakily.) Bacurau opens March 6.
