Director Anita Rocha da Silveira’s blood-flecked film follows a troupe of high school students whose primary interests include the victims of a local murderer. The macabre monomania of one teenager, played by the uncompromising Valentina Herszage, takes a suffocating and serpentine path as Kill Me Please unspools into an electric heap of carnality and chaos. With ferocious and intimate use of sound, color, and performance, Anita Rocha da Silveira’s film is a neon nightmare, where stirring images create a stinging sensation of vibrant dread. Imagine John Hughes by way of Raw’s Julia Ducournau. One of the most intriguing and talented filmmakers to emerge today, the Brazilian director’s artistic compass explores pop culture, friendship and youth with a strikingly observant approach. Kill Me Please is an honest piece of filmmaking that circumvents the homogeny of standard high school movies. Using the impressionable aspects of adolescence to ask questions about the finite and confusing nature of life, Anita Rochada Silveira is one of the smartest directors working today.
