- Release Date: 02/23/2010
The Cult Epics label's original Fernando Arrabal Collection issued the three best-known features by painter, novelist and filmmaker Arrabal, that master of wild, baroque and occasionally violent Spanish surrealism - Viva La Muerte! (1970), I Will Walk Like a Crazy Horse (1972) and The Guernica Tree (1975). This follow-up volume continues the tradition, extending its survey of Arrabal's work into the 1980s and 1990s, and tacking on two bonus documentaries as well. Contents include the 1983 punk rock opus Car Cemetery, starring Juliet Berto; the hallucinatory 1982 children's film The Emperor of Peru, starring Mickey Rooney; and the 1992 feature Farewell, Babylon!, adapted from Arrabal's 1969 novel and co-starring Spike Lee and Lelia Fischer. The two bonus documentaries on display are Borges: A Life in Poetry (1998) and Arrabal: Panik Cineast (2007).
