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.
