This Brazilian drama is a welcome and assured intervention into that country's calcified ideals about desire and masculinity.

[His characters aren't] reduced to one-dimensional stereotypes. He draws them as equals insofar as their inability to fully embrace who they are away from external forces.

Deserto Particular, a.k.a. Private Desert, bewitchingly explores the story of who we all are through Daniel and Sara.

[The] dramatic arc isn't forced at all. [Full review in Spanish]

A potent rejoinder to the hypermasculine, explicitly transphobic values of the Bolsonaro regime.
