Grand Guignol!  It's the North American Trailer for Álex De La Iglesia's THE LAST CIRCUS
One of my favourite films on the festival circuit last year was Alex de la Iglesia's masterpiece, The Last Circus (aka Balada Triste) an allegory of Franco era Spain re-envisioned as an absurd killing joke by way of a grotesque opera.  Of bread and circuses!  Think Alejandro Jodorowsky with geek-ier sensibility (and a bit more of an understanding on how to get a performance from his actors) and a whopping sized budget.  Destined not to find a wide audience, but instead be wholeheartedly embraced by a fervent cult following, The Last Circus is as 'Twitch-y' as films ever come.  I love how this trailer plays out somewhere in the middle ground between Se7en and Life is Beautiful.  Go Spain.

Wish I liked this one more than I did. It was kind of all over the place and by the end I was bored.

Love it....apart from the silly cgi finale, which seems right out of a bad hollywood action movie

Overall fi his perfect crime is a better film
