Critic Reviews for Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • This Brazilian film has been greeted with the same sort of polite praise that Daughters of the Dust earned years ago from left-leaning critics enamored with purportedly novel modes of expression and exotic representation.

    May 25, 2006 | Full Review…
  • The Brazilian film Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures shows how a little imagination and a quality cinematographer can triumph over a poverty of means.

    February 8, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • The film is well worth seeing for its views of the parched wilderness of far-flung Brazil and its talkative depiction of an unlikely friendship.

    December 6, 2005
  • Marcelo Gomes makes an impressive if sober feature helming debut in Cinema, Aspirin and Vultures.

    November 14, 2005 | Full Review…
  • A road movie about the end of the road, about paths diverging, when travellers' time together can only be brief.

    September 15, 2006
  • The two men's personalities, an out-of-the-ordinary setting and time, and camera techniques deftly used bring this quiet piece above the pack.

Audience Reviews for Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures

  • Jun 10, 2018
    More than just an amusing road movie, this wonderful film may seem pretty simple (and even pointless to some) at a first look, but is in fact a delicate story of friendship between two very different men with only broken dreams and uncertainty ahead of them (and João Miguel is fantastic).
