“A true cinematic masterpiece, I loved every minute of it.” – Monstersatplay.com
Arrabal’s second film; I WILL WALK LIKE A CRAZY HORSE (J’Irai Comme in Cheval Fou) forsakes the politcal allegory present in Viva La Muerte for a dramatic discovery of faith and organized religion.
The story follows a man, Aden, played by the American George Shannon, who flees society after the death of his controlling mother. Out in the wilderness he encounters the beauty of nature, and under the tutelage of a hermit named Marvel, becomes a “normal homme.” Aden falls desperately in love with Marvel, who can communicate with animals, the clouds, and the sun. Upon returning to civilization, Marvel in tow, Aden is more aware than ever of the hideous and hypocritical nature of human society.
I WILL WALK LIKE A CRAZY HORSE has long been considred a masterpiece of surrealist film and stands as Arrabal’s most delirious and devlish picture, and outrageous portrait of both other-wordly beauty and inner torment.
