Critic Reviews for Justice (Justica)
Already a master of the objective eye, Ramos uses her unobtrusive camera to uncover the frustrations inherent in a vastly imbalanced society where hope is scarce and the future is dim.
Justice often moves painfully slowly, and so does Justice (Justiça), a documentary by Maria Ramos about low-level criminal courts in Brazil that at times might be mistaken for an unedited video feed from a courthouse security camera.
With its unobtrusive visual style, Justice plays like a near-parody of documentary objectivity, subtly suggesting the malleable nature of 'truth,' both in the courtroom and the movie theater.
The film brings to mind the good and bad of two other courtroom documentaries, 10th District Court and Sisters in Law.
Despite its outsize ambitions, Evan Oppenheimer's independent feature is generally low-key and likable, thanks mainly to a talented cast.
