Synopsis: Behind the closed doors of a fortress palace overlooking a mountain, the democratically elected elected president is surrounded by his close advisers. He is getting ready for an evening in honor of the 200th anniversary of the country’s independence, to be attended by foreign dignitaries and heads of state. But in the city a popular uprising is spreading. Moloch Tropical describes the last weird and absurd twenty-four hours of a leader’s power before his fall.



Raoul Peck's intellectually ambitious, emotionally unaffecting "Moloch Tropical", a film that combines farce, Shakespearean and Greek tragedy and contemporary political drama.
The Hollywood Reporter


Raoul Peck tucks a searing critique of absolute power within the most elegant chamber drama. It's a masterful move.


A gripping feature film, "Moloch Tropical" is a satirically edged melodrama.

The New York Times


A hothouse study of a man and country crippled by corrupted ideals.
