Whoa! This trailer for Matteo Garrone's new film The Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) is a real eye opener. A lurid, sumptuous, dark fairy tale overflowing with gore, sex and surrealism? Yes please!
Getting a killer '70s/'80s Euro horror and artsploitation vibe from this. A nice mixture of John Boorman, Ken Russell, Walerian Borowczyk and Jean Rollin perhaps? We'll find out when it debuts at Cannes next month.
Garrone is the co-writer and director of 2008's highly lauded Gomorrah, which I've heard great things about and now feel the need to track down and watch ASAP.
