THE ONE-EYED KING

Screening

03/09/2017 9:30pm

David is a riot cop; he’s shot a bullet into the eyes of two protestors already this year. Lidia is David’s foodie wife; she’s invited their friend Sandra for dinner. Sandra brings along her boyfriend, Ignasi—who just happens to be wearing an eye-patch.

Based on his own play, Catalan writer-director Marc Crehuet’s feature debut synthesizes sundry aspects of post-financial crisis Spanish life into a wickedly comic satire. When Lidia walks out on him, David winds up soliciting advice from Ignasi—which he interprets as a prompt to kidnap a politician.
Rife with twists and resisting easy polemics, The One-Eyed King burns with ideas and savage dramatics.
