An amoral look (2001) at amoral teens in Sao Paulo. Three middle-class boys who just graduated from high school listen to rap, surf the Net, get wasted, and talk about their lives. As if to prove he's part of the Internet generation, director Alexandre Stockler videotapes the three using digicams, Webcams, and surveillance cams as they gang-rape a girl, then inadvertently kill one of their mothers—or are they making up a story? Lots of fast zooms and frantic editing help ensure that the story quickly gets confusing and emotionally cold. Stockler makes killing grotesque and exhilarating, but to what purpose? In Portuguese with subtitles. 92 min.
