Netflix also released the following synopsis of "O Matador"/"The Killer": 

In a lawless land, Shaggy (Diogo Morgado), investigates the whereabouts of the bandit, Seven Ears (Deto Montegro).  His search leads him back to civilization and ensures that in death, he finally learns how to live.  His journey will bring him to discover that his violent past is a legacy that refuses to die alongside him. Directed by Marcelo Galvão (Colegas, A Despedida), "The Killer" is the first Netflix original film produced in Brazil.

Some of you may be counting down to Christmas... but I'm counting down to November 10th.  :)

It is PHENOMENAL, right?  I don't want to spoil anything for those who may not have watched it yet, but the film is powerful.  Daniela and Alberto are amazing, and Diogo proves he is a masterful storyteller behind the camera, in ANY language.  Seriously, he is truly a director of extraordinary talent and I literally cannot wait to see where he goes next in his directing career.

If YOU loved "Excuse" as much as I did, please share your thoughts in the comments below, or on the SLX YouTube page.  Let's show our support for this incredible film! 

CONGRATULATIONS Diogo, and please keep these amazing films coming!
