Featured this month at the Edinburgh International Film Festival: “Dishevelled private eye Nico Beamonte’s latest case comes from God himself – possibly. He wants Nico to find the mysterious Black Panther. But who, or what, is the Black Panther? And what has this got to do with a cryogenically frozen Mariachi singer and a 1950s flying saucer? Surrealism, Mexican-style – as if film noir had collided with props left over from a Ray Harryhausen film.”

That was a very interesting video to watch…and your use of an elongated video format was a wise choice…from a visual point of view.

LOL…the scene(s) from this film is (are) surreal…
…I also like the cinematographer use of light and dark in this film.
I must admit that I wasn’t familiar Ray Harryhausen’s work on film.
Well, not until recently, when TCM paid tribute to his work.
Thanks, for sharing,
Surrealism Mexican-style brings Luis Bunuel to mind, (especially for LOS OLVIDADOS) and there certainly was a noirish underpinning in GATTACA (which many others might classify as science fiction) but the trailer you show here – not to mention the bizarre context – is definitely an intriguing hybrid. And the trailer is great too!
I have been looking for this film for some time now. Is it available anywhere? In any medium?
Sorry Steve I can’t find it either 😦
We need to band together to get this film released on blu-ray!!
