    • Synopsis
    • Mexican director Juan Orol was nicknamed the ‘Involuntary Surrealist' because he made films that were so bad that they were good; shoddy, improvised, vulgar… but fun! In fact, they were so entertaining that they became box-office hits, making Orol the king of the B movie during Mexico's golden age of national cinema. This film pays homage to the stereotypes of cinema via the life of the director who best embodied it, Juan Orol. Ed Wood would be jealous.
