I Will Walk Like a Crazy Horse (1973)

Avant-Garde, Cult, Fantasy 1h 30m 1973

Arrabal’s second film; I WILL WALK LIKE A CRAZY HORSE (J’Irai Comme in Cheval Fou) forsakes the political allegory present in VIVA LA MUERTE for a dramatic discovery of faith and organized religion.

The story follows a man, Aden, played by the American George Shannon, who flees society after the death of his controlling mother. Out in the wilderness, he encounters the beauty of nature, and under the tutelage of a hermit named Marvel, becomes a “normal home.” Aden falls desperately in love with Marvel, who can communicate with animals, the clouds, and the sun. Upon returning to civilization, Marvel in tow, Aden is more aware than ever of the hideous and hypocritical nature of human society.

I WILL WALK LIKE A CRAZY HORSE has long been considered a masterpiece of surrealist film and stands as Arrabal’s most delirious and devilish picture, an outrageous portrait of both otherworldly beauty and inner torment.

“A true cinematic masterpiece… I loved every minute of it.” – Monstersatplay.com
