I thought about Pixote while I was watching City of God and how Fernando Ramos Da Silva the "star" of Pixote was murdered less than 10 years after making the film and returning to his criminal life. And while I agree with you about the content, City of God is so unself-consciously presented that the way the film is done is part of its power. Haven't seen the Buenuel film yet but I just reserved it at the library.
