"Pixote" is an amazing cinematic social document made with fury and passion by an uncompromising director. There has never been another film that approaches its depiction of Brazil's condemned youth, not even "City of God."

'Pixote' grandfathered other reality-based slum violence efforts heavier in their visual mayhem but not any more so in emotional impact.

Though shapeless, Hector Babenco's docu-style social expose about homeless kids in Brazil contains some of the most harrowing scenes about street children in any film; a companion piece to Bunuel's Los Olvidados and De Sica's Bicycle Thief and Shoeshine
