A colorful, carnivalesque return to the subject of his Macunaíma, the author Oswald de Andrade, Brazilwood Man—the title references the modernist writer’s 1924 Manifesto of Brazilwood Poetry—presents its protagonist as portrayed simultaneously by male- and female-presenting performers, set out upon a cannibalistic collision course. “Andrade’s final feature was arguably his greatest… [a] bemused, sexy, and positively ecstatic take on the life, work, and ideas of Oswald de Andrade… Lucid, sensual, and gloriously schizophrenic, Brazilwood Man has the lilt of a musical, and sparkles like an elegant comedy of manners, bursting with ideas and innuendos.”—Olaf Möller, Film Comment
