Another awesome thing: on the street here you can buy BOPE "sequels" (up to "Tropa de Elite 4").
"Tropa de Elite 2" is the film "Noticias de uma Guerra Particular". A documentary that takes on the clash between police and drug gangs in Rio from a sociological perspective (in some ways, an anti- Tropa de Elite).
"Tropa de Elite 3" is a collage of videos from police operations in favelas.
"Tropa de Elite 4" is the film Qase Dois Irmaos, a drama about old friends who meet later in life: one as a senator, and the other a dealer.
And I haven't even got around to the totally unlicensed BOPE dolls yet. Waiting on a picture.
