ARREBATO’s dimension-shattering blend of heroin, sex, and Super-8 is the final word on cinemania, infamously recognized as Pedro Almodóvar’s favorite horror film, and final feature of cult filmmaker and movie poster designer Iván Zulueta. This towering feat of counterculture is a film without genre and now is showcased in stunning, restored 4K glory.
“Arrebato” invokes cinema as an otherworldly entity that possesses, just as addictive and destructive as mind-altering substances injected into the bloodstream. —RogerEbert.com
About the film: Horror movie director José is adrift in a sea of doubt and drugs. As his belated second feature nears completion, his reclusive bubble is popped by two events: a sudden reappearance from an ex-girlfriend and a package from past acquaintance Pedro: a reel of Super-8 film, an audiotape, and a door key. From there, the boundaries of time, space, and sexuality are erased as José is once more sucked into Pedro’s vampiric orbit. Together, they attempt the ultimate hallucinogenic catharsis through a moebius strip of filming and being filmed. (1979, Spain, 114 min)
