What A Mess

3 years, 12 months ago at Feb 18 1:06
Mine is a simple truth- clowns are scary. "The Last Circus" takes full advantage of that, combining clownspoitation with surrealism, graphic violence, and scenes so bizarre they approach dark comedy. Then it falls apart. Halfway through the depraved goodness and spectacle of oddity, it takes a nosedive and lands directly in the loo. And flushes itself.

The setting is Madrid, 1973... read more

"3.10. Hyvin vaikea arvioitava. Visuaalisesti elokuva voisi olla pätevääkin katsottavaa, ellei sitä olisi ihan syyttä filtteröity ihan liian harmaaksi. Perinteisen asetelman hyvin... mielikuvituksellisesta kierrättämisestä sen sijaan irtoaa lisäpisteitä roimasti. Surullinen ja naurava klovni kamppailevat kuvankauniin naisen suosiosta sekä muuttuvat enemmän tai vähemmän mielenvikaisista täysin seinähulluiksi ja väkivaltaisiksi. Siinä sivussa muun muassa purraan Francolta sormi "

" Video Store Rental Destined for instant cult status, The Last Circus is the delightfully demented art-trash opus from Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia, a man whose work I've never encountered before. Before the opening credits are finished you'll know that you're in for something special. Whether this particular brand of special is to your taste or not is another matter. Stripped to its essence, The Last Circus is a classic tale in every sense of the word- one doesn't need to strain to s"

What A Mess

“Mine is a simple truth- clowns are scary. "The Last Circus" takes full advantage of that, combining clownspoitation with surrealism, graphic violence, and scenes so bizarre they approach dark comedy. Then it falls apart. Halfway through the depraved goodness and spectacle of oddity, it takes a nosedive and lands directly in the loo. And flushes itself.

The setting is Madrid, 1973. Javier (the pot-bellied, goggle-eyed, and grim Carlos Areces) becomes a clown, but not the kind you might expect. Rather than making his living on gleeful gags and slapstick, he is sad on life and on stage.

When Javier arrives at the broken-down circus with which he seeks employment, he meets a group of oddballs- a stuntsman, two quarreling animal owners, a man enamored with his highly aggres” read more

"Watched at Home; Repulsive, glorious, off-beat and achingly sad. It's an amazing film, populated by grotesque (and very real) characters and captured with the frenzied eye of one of Spain's best directors. Acting as a kind of macabre romance the film's central narrative focuses on a love triangle between two clowns and the the acrobat they both love. Both full of murderous rage the triangle soon turns vicious with one brutally disfiguring the other before fleeing from everything he loves. Wit"

"Poikani, sinusta tulee surullinen klovni: suuret kulmakarvat ja pieni saksofoni. The Last Circus herättää useaan otteeseen kysymään kainosti, että mitä vittua tässä nyt oikeastaan todistaakaan. Ytimessä on kolmiodraama, hauska ja surullinen klovni taistelevat pakkomielteisesti kauniin trapetsitaiteilijan sydämestä, jossain välissä Generallissimo Francoa purraan ja lopuksi itketään ja nauretaan, nauretaan ja itketään. The Last Circus on yhtä aikaa äärimmäisen korea ja äär"
