Carmen Miranda: Bananas Is My Business

Highly personal and informative, Helena Solberg's feature-length 1994 documentary about Brazilian musical star Carmen Miranda and her complex identities—a Broadway and Hollywood icon who caricatured Brazilian traits, a woman who became a campy “bombshell”—is an eye-opener. A Brazilian-American herself, Solberg may have more invested in this subject than she can handle, but most of what she has to say and show is so interesting and intelligent you're not likely to object. 92 min.
