God, Jr.

An investigative reporter (Jairo Matos) looking into the disappearance of a businessman in Rio is drawn into a tangle of duplicity in this 2000 Brazilian mystery by Mauro Lima. The film opens with a giddy, noirish plunge into a seedy underworld of sex, cocaine, and snuff movies, but in its second half the reporter is led to a rural hippie paradise commanded by a messianic cult leader, and the plot becomes less coherent as the hero succumbs to its allure and bounces from one psychedelic trip to the next. 140 min.
