Tom Sizemore Heads into Óscar Aibar's EL BOSC
Óscar Aibar is not as well known outside of Spain as he should be. His films have that strange and wonderful blending of genres, such as comedy and sci-fi in Platillos Volantes (about textile workers obsessed with UFO's), sci-fi and western in Atolladero (set in a lawless hinterland with Iggy Pop as a psychopathic killer), and even a bit of history in the story of 1960s Spanish comic writer El Gran Vázquez, starring Santiago Segura. Aibar combines the great Spanish absurd and grotesque tradition into postmodern myth. He's just begun shooting his sixth feature film, El Bosc, starring Tom Sizemore.
Aibar isn't the first director to add a little supernatural to this time period, but given that he is also a comic book author, no doubt his take will be imaginative.
showing a film that looks to be dark, gritty, and more than a little terrifying.
