In a Glass Cage

In a Glass Cage

Directed by Agusti Villaronga

A child-molesting Nazi in an iron lung is tormented by one of his victims, who poses as a nurse for the evil invalid. But Angelo's not just out for revenge, he's also looking to do something much, much darker. Agusti Villaronga's highly controversial Spanish thriller plumbs the depths of man's ability to inflict horror on others, and then dives even further down. Even John Waters, whose films featured singing rectums, and worse, called it, "The most shocking movie I've ever seen...I thought, this is going too far...I'm too scared to show it to my friends." (In Spanish with English Subtitles)

This movie was made the same year as I was, and it still holds up. Some people might find the pace and melodrama kinda janky, but the set pieces, the framing, the camera angles, all of it is so well thought-out; beautiful even. This went in a direction I didn't anticipate and watching it unfold was amazing and awful. An illustration of how abuse is a cycle. Abused become abusers in a heartbreaking loop. Definitely worth your time if you enjoy something more retro and something WAY more envelope-pushing.

Creepy nazi pedophile movie. Some scenes are as disturbing as anything that has ever been shot but mostly it's a slow paced european style art film.
