Queimada posted by Richard Seymour
Marlon Brando flashes his rather sexy blue eyes at some ex-Portuguese colonists and persuades them to side with the British Empire, which is on the side of civilisation and progress. Would you feel the movie was ruined for you if I added that it is an analogy of the Vietnam War, and that the British end up being even more brutal than the Portuguese? Tough.
