The second track with Robert Monell and Rodney Barnet is also adept and surprisingly doesn’t overlap very much (apart from both obviously going into Madrid’s work within and outside of cinema) as they chew on mid-‘70s Spanish horror cinema and really dissect Rocha’s unusual and fascinating presence that really proves to be the make or break element of this film. A groundskeeper's son, who is mentally unstable due to childhood trauma, goes on a murdering spree where his perception of reality is distorted by imagining people as mannequins and vice versa.
