Eye candy that’s a nutritious, full meal, “Brimstone & Glory” trains its ecstatic camera on Tultepec, a town in south-central Mexico famed for its manufacture of fireworks — and an annual National Pyrotechnics Festival so giddily cinematic that the medium itself practically seems to roll over and wag tail in approval. Mixing sheer spectacle with modest but pleasing human-interest threads, Viktor Jakovleski’s first directorial feature is a poetical, entrancing documentary that should delight niche viewers across many cultural borders.
