| A truly innovative and risk-taking film.
"Spanish Fly" deals with what happens to an eclectic mix of bar-patrons in Los Angeles after an aphrodisiac is introduced into the social mix. The film is presented in real-time, which means that it shows ninety minutes at the bar as it is unfolding in the present. No flashbacks, no time-lapses, and almost no cuts or edits in the scenes. It is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock's "Rope", in the sense that you truly feel you are in the world of these characters and are never taken away for extraneous time-lapses. It all takes place now, right in front of you. The humor is hilarious. The characters are so diverse and full of real-life, that you truly think these are people you could easily run into at your favorite bar. Then the "Spanish Fly" is introduced. The world turns upside-down as these characters are put through emotional and sexual shenanigans that make you howl with laughter and, just as suddenly, cry with sadness. The performers are all top-notch and director, Will Wallace, has done an incredible job of bringing this potpourri of wacky and sensitive characters together. His grasp and insight into the inner workings of the characters is truly enchanting. Producer Dan Wulkan has expertly juggled together all the elements needed to make the film work flawlessly. The camera work is smooth and flowing, floating from one scene to the other and then back at the appropriate time. Highly recommended if you seek a peek into the human psyche and wish to have a rip-roaring laugh while you're at it.
