Brichta gives a compellingly wired performance, his fast-talking energy recalling the inspired intensity of vintage Robin Williams or Jim Carrey.
If Martin Scorsese directed a film about a children's entertainer it might look something like Brazilian biopic 'Bingo'.
Bowling along at a cracking pace and with a deliciously retro look, Rezende's film has a buoyancy and joi-de-vivre that acts as a welcome counterweight to the story - the self-destruction of the man behind Bingo the clown.
It's a thinly disguised biopic, a free-wheeling, no-holds-barred satire on television, celebrity and actors for whom real life is a stage, done in a very Brazilian way that lets the emotions hang out.
Has little new to say about the perils and pitfalls of stardom, but the talent behind and in front of the camera give the clichés a fresh coat of grease paint.
Daniel Rezende's film is a little trite in its storyline, but its lusty, Scorsese-style picture of bad behaviour in the world of children's television is a circus show worth seeing.
An ambitious, sprawling, novelistic beast of a movie ...
Dripping with '80s neon, drugs and clown sex, it's Boogie Nights with funny shoes.
A true story of sex, sleaze and celebrity, it has a freewheeling and unfaltering energy.
The film has little to offer in terms of ideas or insight other than to say: "All this, while being a clown! For kids! Isn't that just mad?" It's Brazil's official entry for this year's Oscars. I won't be betting on it.
It is a laborious drama, which takes the true-life myth for granted ...
In his debut feature, director Daniel Rezende (a renowned editor) foregrounds the sheer chutzpah and energy of his protagonist but the latter part of the film is far less invigorating than the beginning.
