The Last Circus

Mad Spanish filmmaker Álex de la Iglesia (Acción Mutante, The Day of the Beast) takes us on a delirious and demented trip to the circus. During the Spanish Civil War (setting of Guillermo Del Toro's almost equally twisted Pan's Labyrinth), a happy clown is unwittingly drafted from the local circus and becomes one of the war's most feared (not to mention freaky) guerilla fighters. Years later, the bloody clown's orphan son follows in his dad's footsteps, joining the circus as a sad clown. There, he engages in an epic battle of wills with the reigning clown king, a sadistic lunatic with a sexually rapacious acrobat for a girlfriend. This one hovers somewhere between the dark imagination of Del Toro and the grungy whimsy of Jean-Pierre Juenet (City of Lost Children, Amélie)--then the really crazy shit kicks in! 107 minutes R.
