It's doubtlessly true, relentlessly dreary and certainly part of the modern conversation. The question is: Does it add anything to that conversation?
Araby is unmistakably contemporary in its fashions, settings, and physical behavior; the similarities to the past seem found rather than manufactured.
A beautifully turned Brazilian movie that carries on as if a social-cause documentary and a folk song confessional had entered into a poignant embrace.
The filmmakers dramatize, thinly but ardently, the rise of self-consciousness, of a revolution in the soul that hints at political action.
Thanks to Mr. de Sousa's superb performance, the movie often convincingly portrays not just the exploited condition of laborers such as Cristiano, but the nagging sadness of life itself.
This is a beautiful bummer, giving voice to someone who's barely a number, but only to remind us that most of us are OK not thinking about numbers at all.
It's a social and political commentary of a modern day industrial power and the polarisation and inequality prevalent in most developing nations.
It's a wonderfully vibrant film that connects to the Depression-era working-class films in America.
The directors prove they have a rare ability to make a flow of words really cinematic.
Without pretense or sentiment, Araby is one of the year's richest cinematic experiences. It unearths the costs of constantly roaming free, chasing memories, leaving people behind, and refusing to express one's self in the moment.
An austerely beautiful, minimalist film like this either works for you or it doesn't. Initially just mildly intrigued, I eventually found Araby something of a revelation...
It's a soft bolero of a film, painting a searing portrait of life for developing-nation laborers but coming around in the end to touches of loveliness and humanity we didn't see coming.
