FERNANDO ARRABAL COLLECTION 2
The 3-Disc set includes- (1)Car Cemetery (1983): Combining punk rock and post-apocalyptic mayhem, Arrabal's outrageous adaptation of his infamous 1958 stage play is a gallows-humor romp in a wretched dystopia. One of Arrabal's most rare and wanted films. (2)The Emperor of Peru (1982): A charming and phantasmagoric children's film that stars Mickey Rooney. Rarely seen outside of a brief theatrical run and a long out-of-print videocassette release. (3)And three bonus films as part of the exclusive box set: Farewell, Babylon! (1992), Borges, Life of a Poet (1998) Arrabal, Panik Cineast (2007).
From the infamous Joe D'Amato – director of such EuroSleaze classics as EMANUELLE IN BANGKOK and PAPAYA: LOVE GODDESS OF THE CANNIBALS – comes perhaps his most sumptuous skin saga of all! Legendary sex goddess Laura Gemser (BLACK EMANUELLE) stars as an African princess brought home as a slave by a 1940s military officer, only to be sucked into a depraved new world of voyeurism, drugs, pornography, lesbian seduction, unholy nuns and more.
Combining punk rock and post-apocalyptic mayhem, Arrabal's outrageous adaptation of his infamous stage play is a gallows-humor romp in a wretched dystopia. The inhabitants of a junkyard at the edge of a nuclear crater live hand to mouth all the while being hounded by authorities from a corrupt government. Among them is Emanou (Alain Bashung RIP 2009), a punk rock star agitator doomed to betrayal by one of his own. A raucous and absurd retelling of the Christ story with thugs, murderers, pimps and punks, Car Cemetery is one of Fernando Arrabal's most rare and wanted films.
