Bus 174

Shocking and sobering documentary which ponders the social conditions that turned a homeless street kid into a bus hijacker.
7 Aug 20:40 This fine documentary is concerned with an infamous bus hijacking in Rio and the subsequent stand-off between the hijacker and police, which had the nation glued to its television screens. Padilha uses the TV footage to reconstruct the long, nerve-shredding siege (with a kinetic style reminiscent of Kevin Macdonald’s One Day in September), while exploring the social conditions that turned a homeless man into a criminal.
