THE EDGE OF DEMOCRACY
Petra Costa | Joanna Natasegara | Shane Boris | Tiago Pavan
A cautionary tale about one of the most dramatic periods in Brazilian history and the polarizing rise and fall of the country’s leaders.
In every category, one of the nominees has to be last and that just happens to be the case with “The Edge Of Democracy” in the Best Documentary Feature category. Not that the film doesn’t have its merits, it’s just that the other documentaries have a little more going for them, especially in the case of “For Sama” and “Honeyland,” not even mentioning “American Factory,” which is the currently experts’ front-runner pick.
