O Bandido da Luz Vermelha / The Red Light Bandit (1968) DVD9
O Bandido da Luz Vermelha is one of the great masterpieces of Brazilian Marginal Cinema, directed by the mad genius Rogerio Sganzerla,
The film looks at an infamous criminal – the Red Light Bandit – who breaks into houses and rapes the women. As the police try and track him down, the media hype his story up and he eventually becomes a cult figure used by everyone from corrupt politicians to his girlfriend. The crimes committed by the Red Light Bandit are shocking themselves, but Sganzerla put these crimes within the context of the actions of the politicians and the police, and in the process, shows a highly corrupt and brutal Brazil.
Based on an actual real-life criminal.
