Patricia Melo (1999) The Killer.

In this psychological thriller, Brazilian screenwriter Melo has created a social drama, featuring a used-car salesman in suburban Sao Paolo. After a laughable incident he has become a killer for hire. As he is cleaning up the crime-ridden neighborhood, he is gaining social respect. But then his lawless world is falling apart in a killing spree. This literary study of disintegrating social fabric gives a disturbing view into Brazilian society.
