  • Long on hero worship and woefully short on insight, Lula: Son of Brazil oozes good intentions, but it wouldn't look out of place in a retrospective of early Soviet workerist cinema. show more

  • This insipidly inspirational biopic of the two-term Brazilian president is a safe, bourgeois vision of proletarian struggle. show more

  • Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brazil's reformist two-term president, gets the once-over-lightly treatment in Lula, Son of Brazil. show more
