This is it, people. Álex de la Iglesia's boldly subversive Spanish / Mexican sequel to WILD AT HEART, co-scripted by Barry Gifford and starring Rosie Perez and Javier Bardem with a supporting cast that includes James Gandolfini, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Santiago Segura and REPO MAN director Alex Cox is finally being shown in Montreal. It only took 22 years! The eccentric, borderline surreal tale of a psychotic criminal couple (an utterly ferocious Perez taking on the role of Isabela Rossellini's character in the Lynch film, playing opposite Bardem as you've never seen him before) barrelling through a voodoo-laced odyssey of crime that spans a trail of destruction from Mexico to Las Vegas, it's an intense, funny and disturbing film, bursting with unexpected moments and vibrant with de la Iglesia's breathtaking visual flair and provocative social commentary.

This caustic and bizarre black comedy action thriller was meant to be the celebrated filmmaker's American cross-over film, and with that in mind, De La Igelsia couldn't resist throwing in nods to Fuller, Ford and Peckinpah, but its relentlessly transgressive amorality ended up scaring off most US distributors – while winning multiple Goyas in Spain - before being censored beyond recognition, retitled and dumped.

Cinema Moderne and The Fantasia International Film Festival are proud to present the World Premiere of Severin Films' new restoration of this underseen hand-grenade of confrontational cinema in its original director's cut.
