Although occurring in northeast Brazil during the late 19th century/early 20th century, the story line could just as well occurred in the American West during the same time period. The look and feel of The Killer displayed an ethnic diversity that was surely present in the American West but never on display in any of our most noteworthy westerns nor spaghetti westerns. As usual and customary, the wealth is in the hands of the 1% Western Europeans and descendants who are driven by greed and status. They no more appreciate and accept their abundant cultural surroundings than native peoples could accept intrusion and control. A must see.
