The remote Brazilian village of Bacurau is under siege from the start of this thriller. The nearby river has been dammed by venal politicians, so the town’s lone tanker must travel miles upstream to gather water. Its 94-year-old matriarch dies. And then things really take a turn toward the bizarre: Bacurau mysteriously disappears from satellite maps, cellphone coverage breaks down, and a mysterious band of foreigners led by Michael (Udo Kier) arrives with its own violent agenda.
