      Audience Member Fernando Arrabal's cult film is a mix of blood & gore, bodily fluids, animal killings and nudity. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Imagine if you will, a recut of Pan's Labyrinth. With all the fantasy scenes cut out and replaced with scenes from a snuff film directed by Andy Warhol. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the most violent films I've seen in a long time, and also one of the most mesmerizing. The film's reflection on damaged family life is surprisingly refreshing. The boy who plays the main character does a perfect job. The look of the film is just simply perfect and the film's ending is unforgettable. This is a must see. If you loved El Topo, this film explores similar territory. Check this out! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Surreal and experimental movie about the Spanish civil war. Lots of unexplained and rather disturbing imagery, and a haunting soundtrack, but not as great as Jodorowki's work which this reminds me heavily of (and who made a movie about the same story called "Fando y Lis"). Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Early seventies Spanish surrealism. Not bad, but a bit shallow and deliberately outre. However... it's only 90 minutes, so it doesn't outlast its welcome. One for fans of Jodorowsky and Wojciech Has. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This film did disturbed me with the animal cruelty in it i did see it as a alright film but it is not for the weak, it could of been better as a surreal film but with the cruielty in it, it did put me off if you blank it out it is a very good film so all up it is a good film minus the animal cruielty.
