505) The Last Circus (2010) Dir: Alex de la Iglesia Date Released: August 19, 2011 Date Seen: December 25, 2011 Rating: 4/5
What soul-deadening drug do American critics take when they watch de la Iglesia's gleefully unsound and often more heady than gross black comedies? I mean, really: this is heady, crazy, needs-annotations-because-it's-so-dense satire. And it's funny! And mean! And out there! And strange! Like the white clown in this twisted lil flick, de la Iglesia deserves a better audience. 'Cause the one he's got sure as shit isn't paying attention.
