Álex de la Iglesia's gonzo allegory about the legacy of the Spanish Civil War is both his wildest and most wildly ambitious feature to date.
Opening with a dazzling title sequence that matches classic horror-movie villains with some of the twentieth century's all-too-real monsters, de la Iglesia's gonzo allegory is both his wildest and most wildly ambitious feature to date. Opening with a prologue set in 1937 -- where an itinerant circus' "Sad Clown" (Santiago Segura) wreaks some impressive havoc on Franco's Nationalist army with a machete before being wounded and captured -- the film then skips ahead to 1973, where the Clown's son Javier (Carlos Areces) has taken on his father's mantle and now plays the Sad Clown in a circus. When Javier falls in love with the beautiful dancer Natalia (Carolina Bang), he comes into conflict with her brutal lover Sergio, the circus' "Silly Clown," leading to a mad apotheosis at the Valley of the Fallen, Franco's monument to "national reconciliation" in the wake of the Civil War. "Brilliant, bizarre and utterly demented ... the jaw-dropping brio of [the film's] execution takes the breath away: resisting its lunatic spell would probably require full-body sedation" (Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times).
