Basque director Álex de la Iglesia's exotic, surreal, hilarious, bloody and utterly explosive grand opus.

From the far-too-teeming brain of Spanish writer/director Alex de la Iglesia, The Last Circus is a bizarre, surreal, grotesque, fascinating, demanding, disappointing and ultimately exhausting political allegory that plays like a waking nightmare.

Álex de la Iglesia holds back nothing, a strategy that generates a compelling sense of the phantasmagoric nightmarishness of Franco's Spain.

Leave any semblance of sensitivity at the box office and enjoy this breathlessly paced, visually busy, certifiably nutty slice of Spanish surrealism.
