Visionary and hallucinatory
20 April 2004 | by (Córdoba, Argentina) – See all my reviews

As many genius, David Lynch created his own forerunners. Robert Wiene (Cabinet of Dr. Caligari), Tod Browning (Freaks) and Herk Harvey (Carnival of Souls) are some of them. Traces of David Lynch's trademark can be easily found in the movies above. But is very surprising to find a much less known director, Leonardo Favio, who was anticipating Davids Lynch's atmosphere and characters in Argentina, in the early '60s. It is amazing because Lynch couldn't know his work. `El dependiente' (the salesclerk) is the ultimate demonstration of how sharp and how close to Lynch's nightmares Favio was able to reach. Favio surpass the bizarre and the hallucinatory and creates a disturbing story with an incredible ending, more effective than many Lynch's endings. It is difficult to describe a movie like this, but is even more hard to find it, so it will remain as a hidden treasure, a piece of art sunk in the night of times, waiting for an unlikely redemption. 10/10
