Much of Sequestro looks, basically, like COPS.

Although Atalla surely couldn't have intended to desensitize viewers, Sequestro comes very close to exhausting them.

With its vérité footage and synthesized score, Sequestro at times plays like a non-trashy episode of Cops.

Ultimately electrifying, both in what it reveals and how it reveals it.

...a brilliant examination of the horror of kidnapping, showing the real life victims and their families at the time of their anguish; hard to forget.

Filming over four years and tracking several cases, the Brazilian director Jorge W. Atalla favors a fevered shooting style that's repetitious and disorienting but also effortlessly dramatic.

Though marred by repetition, this film is a four-year labor of love graphically dramatizing the kidnapping industry in Sao Paulo.

There are riveting moments, especially in tastefully shot interviews with former captives, who quietly describe their physical and psychological torture.
